INTERVIEW: $ #Silicon and PyroGenesis $ Actively Evaluating JV to Manufacture Nanoscale Structure Silicon Powders for Li-ion Batteries $FSLR $SPWR $CSIQ $ $

While Nanoscale Structure Silicon Powders improve Li-ion battery performance, high performance Silicon anodes are not presently commercially feasible due to high manufacturing costs.  Specifically, two major issues have been identified as major impediments to commercial feasibility;

1.      The cost of the high purity Silicon feed material needed

2.      The cost of transforming Silicon into Nanoscale Structure Silicon Powders for Li-ion batteries

HPQ Silicon and Pyrogenesis might have the solution…

Combining the HPQ PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor technology with PyroGenesis Plasma Atomization knowhow to manufacture Nanoscale Structure Silicon powders, could potentially resolve these 2 issues and lead the way to full commercialization of Nanoscale Structure Silicon Powders.  If successful, that should subsequently lead to their wide scale adoption in the battery space.  

If this occurs it would go without saying, HPQ and PyroGenesis would be well positioned to assume a market leading role.
