VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Tech Allows One-Step Transformation Of Quartz Into High Purity Silicon, Enters Most Exciting R&D Phase

Posted by Nik Tsatsos at 5:02 PM on Thursday, April 14th, 2022

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing the high value-added silicon products sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.  

THIRD PARTY VALIDATION FROM LEADING GLOBAL COMPANIES

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:  

●      $HPQ has already Received It’s First Order for Spherical Nano Silicon Material from Major Automobile Manufacturer

●      $HPQ Signed NDA and Received Request for 4N Silicon Material Samples from a World Leading High-Performance Materials Company

●     $HPQ has already received signed NDAs from at least 2 battery players 

●      They also were Issued U.S. Patent For PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

SILICON PRICES SKY ROCKETING

And $HPQ timing couldn’t be better as the price for 1 metric ton of Silicon, as of the end of 2021, reached US $10,000 compared to just US $2,500 a year prior.

The timing couldn’t be better as the company’s Pilot Plant Project is about to enter its most exciting R&D phase. PyroGenesis has informed HPQ that the PUREVAP TM QRR commissioning is about 95% completed to date and that they expect the commissioning to be completed in a few weeks.

Mr. P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis stated:

“Labour shortages with certain suppliers were the cause of having to push back the commissioning from the end of Q1 to the start of Q2. However, with all the remaining commissioning steps to be done in-house, the testing phase should start within the coming weeks,” said Mr. P. Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis. “Rest assured that the delays experienced to date are normal for a project of this type, and that this next milestone will complete the next step towards participating in a marketplace estimated by HPQ to be in excess of 3.8 million tonnes per year worth over US$10 Billion by 2025. We look forward to providing an update on progress within the next 3-4 weeks.”

HPQ CEO Bernard Tourillon commented:

“In the coming weeks, when the PUREVAP T M GEN3 QRR pilot plant is functional HPQ will be disrupting Silicon manufacturing, an industry that still relies on a traditional process to make silicon first developed in 1899. The start of the GEN3 PUREVAP TM QRR pilot plant could not have come at a more opportune time. Demand for high purity silicon from the battery and high-performance material companies continues to rise just as bottlenecks we had foreseen are now occurring in the silicon supply chain. With ESG principles playing an active role in materials sourcing, the world is more aware of the difficulties of securing the ESG compliant Silicon needed to meet its renewable energy goals. The reality of chronic underinvestment in new technologies combined with the offshoring of Silicon production capacity, has created a massive opportunity for HPQ and its PUREVAP TM QRR patented process. HPQ is the only company to bring to market a new process for making Silicon that is perfectly suited to the new demands and realities of the Silicon market.”

    • PUREVAP TM Nano Silicon Reactor (NSiR ) Through its 100% owned subsidiary, HPQ NANO Silicon Powders Inc.,  a new proprietary process that can use different purities of silicon (Si) as feedstock, to make a wide range of nano/micro spherical powders of different sizes and nanowires.

This past August, HPQ Announced a Revolutionary and Breakthrough Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture.

EBH 2 first successfully tested prototype model has a clean energy production capacity starting at 1 Megawatt of power that can be produced over 7 days from 2 litres of water; sufficient energy to power a typical three bedroom suburban house.

Since then, the company has Received TSX Venture Approval to Proceed With EBH2 Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture.

Today the company announced that two PhD’s with more than 30 years practical experience in the field of renewable energy and with first-hand experience developing hydrogen processes, have completed the first round of testing.  

The tests confirmed that the EBH 2 Green Hydrogen Reactors (EBH 2 GHR) uses low voltage 1 to power electrolysers that generate a H 2 + O 2 gas mixture fuels that can be used to power a generator or any kind of fuel system to produce electricity. 

HPQ CEO Bernard Tourillon commented: “Corporations and Governments worldwide strongly believe that Hydrogen can play a significant part in decarbonising our economies, and they are willing to invest billions of dollars to help develop green hydrogen production. EBH2 Systems SA, with their proprietary low-cost electrolyser technology, present HPQ with one of these game changing synergetic opportunities that we simply could not overlook,” Mr. Tourillon, further stated: “We are getting even closer to the point where EBH 2 technology will be validated and when that occurs HPQ will be very well positioned to enter the hydrogen market with a system that can efficiently produce green hydrogen, on demand, which we believe will complement our green silicon materials initiatives needed to meet the demand of the up and coming renewable energy revolution.”

VIDEO – HPQ Silicon Receives U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:37 PM on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.   

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:  

The Company recently announced Receipt of U.S. Patent for Its PUREVAP™ Quartz Reduction Reactor Technology

To understand the importance and the implications of this milestone, this excerpt from the press release says it all:

The US patent covers the PUREVAP™ QRR innovative process, which permits the one-step transformation of quartz (SiO 2 ) into high purity silicon metal (from 99.5% to 99.99% Si) at reduced costs, energy input, and carbon footprint. This game-changing advantage means that the PUREVAP™ QRR process not only produces a higher purity silicon material than traditional processes, but it does not require the extremely pure feedstock needed by conventional processes. In fact, the process only requires 4.5 MT of raw material to make 1 MT of Silicon, versus the 6 MT required by conventional processes, a 25% reduction which potentially allows a 20% cash cost advantage versus the lowest cost traditional Silicon producer . Furthermore, as part of our ongoing strategy of protecting and strengthening the PUREVAP™ Intellectual Property Portfolio, a second patent application, focusing on a new and novel process was filed in 2019 and is presently advancing through the process. 

Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ commented,

“HPQ has been at the forefront of Low-Cost Green Silicon innovation developments since 2015, and getting this U.S. patent approval, combined with the ongoing commissioning of the GEN3 PUREVAP™ QRR pilot plant , has occurred at an opportune time, as demand continues to rise and bottlenecks we had foreseen are now occurring in the silicon supply chain. With ESG principles playing an active role in materials sourcing, the world is more aware of the difficulty of securing the ESG compliant Silicon needed to meet its renewable energy goals. The reality of chronic underinvestment in new technologies combined with the offshoring of Silicon production capacity, has created a massive opportunity for HPQ and its PUREVAP™ QRR patented process, as we are the only company to bring to market a new process to make Silicon that is perfectly suited to the new demands and realities of the Silicon market

HPQ Silicon Resources $HPQ $HPQFF is a Quebec-based company that is developing high value-added silicon products that are sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers – but nobody has yet delivered – until now.

If that sounds a lot like what other small companies are saying lately, $HPQ differentiates itself as a leader of the pack thanks to the following:

As such, HPQ firmly believes its silicon products will play an important role in the renewable energy revolution.

ENTER HYDROGEN – “SCALABLE WITH NO LIMITS”

To this end, the Company has also set its sights on Hydrogen with the following 2 press releases:

AUGUST HPQ Launches Revolutionary and Breakthrough Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture

SEPTEMBER HPQ Receives TSX Venture Approval to Proceed With EBH2 Green Hydrogen Extraction Technology Venture

How powerful is this Revolutionary & Breakthrough Green Hydrogen? Try “SCALABLE WITH NO LIMITS”

“EBH2 is scalable with no limits.  It can power a small domestic generator up to ships, factories, buildings, cryptocurrency mines with high energy consumption and even cities.”

Independent validation of the technology is expected to be complete over the next 60 days. If successful, HPQ proposes to bundle the energy production capability of EBH2 systems with its silicon production to further reduce the environmental footprint of its developing high purity silicon, nano powders, and other Renewable Energy products.  Moreover, if successful, EBH2 would provide HPQ with “power plant” capabilities that would allow it to produce its products anywhere on the planet.

If that wasn’t enough HPQ added the following:

“all the while opening up new, and massive addressable markets for a system that can produce cheaply green hydrogen, on demand …. The Agreement establishes the terms of the creation of a new Joint venture Company (“NEWCO”) owned by HPQ and EBH2 that will market, sell and service EBH2 systems and products in North America (Canada, Mexico, and the United States).  …. units could readily replace solar panels or standby generators for homeowners.”
