VIDEO – $ Silicon Applauds Elon Musk And #Tesla $TSLA Use Of Silicon To Revolutionize Electric Vehicle Batteries $DUK $XEL $NEE $ @elonmusk

HPQ Silicon Resources (HPQ:TSXV) is a Canadian producer of Silicon Solutions that is building a line of specialty silicon products needed for electric batteries.

More than just lip service, HPQ has already announced NDA’s with 2 undisclosed companies in the space and has hinted at other NDA’s that are so tight they could not even be announced.

Over the past 5 years, HPQ has teamed up with 2 world renowned technology partners to manufacture high purity silicon cleaner, cheaper and better than anyone in the world – because you can’t dig it out of the ground like other battery metals such as graphite, cobalt and nickel. Now HPQ is on the verge of sending samples of its industry leading silicon to NDA and other potential partners as early as December.

However, despite providing shareholders with great a great return during this period, HPQ’s silicon plan was still met by skepticism amongst investors who found it easier to understand traditional battery metal stories.
This all changed yesterday, September 23rd 2020, when this headline emerged from Tesla’s “Battery Day”

“Tesla To Revolutionize Use Of Silicon In Batteries: Slash Costs, Increases Range”

With the specific references to Silicon + Cheaper Cost + Longer Range, you would have thought HPQ wrote this headline themselves given the fact this is EXACTLY what they have been telling the world for the last 5 years.  Now, thanks to this headline, HPQ Silicon no longer has to convince everybody that Silicon is the holy grail of batteries …. Elon Musk and Tesla have done it for them in one fell swoop.

If you are serious about battery metals and electric vehicles entering a paradigm shifting parabolic stage in the next 5 years, then you owe it to yourself to watch this interview with CEO Bernard Tourillon.

VIDEO – $ Silicon Development Agreement With #Apollon Solar Expands Into Producing HYDROGEN, With Samples To French Military By December $DUK $XEL $NEE $

When a CEO puts this quote in a press release, you have to take it seriously, especially when his two technology partners helping deliver on it are world renowned:

“Since 2017, our collaboration with Apollon has enabled us to benefit from their world-renowned expertise with high value-added Silicon applications.  The addition of manufacturing hydrogen by hydrolysis to our collaboration opens up a new and unique business opportunity that could represent a second multibillion-dollar addressable market for the PUREVAPTM Nano Silicon (Si) Reactor (“NSiR”) nanopowders.


Two technologies that could deliver vehicles with zero emissions are battery-electric powertrains and hydrogen fuel cells. HPQ is already on the road to becoming an electric battery player, with 2 NDA’s signed in the space – and now will be ready to start sending samples of its nano silicon powders to manufacture Hydrogen by hydrolysis, which is: 

“Getting porous silicon nano powders to react with water “H2O” and thereby releasing significant quantities of Hydrogen ” H2  “.

For decades, hydrogen was presumed to be “the fuel of the future,” with electric cars limited to the niche of small, short-range urban cars – but hasn’t been able to deliver due to too many issues to mention here with fuel cells.  Hydrogen by Hydrolysis is a great alternative but cost prohibitive due to the costs of porous silicon nano powders + power generation inefficiencies …. until now.

Enter HPQ Silicon.  

HPQ Silicon is so confident it can solve this problem that it will have samples of its powders ready for delivery to Apollon Solar and the French Military for testing by December.

INTERVIEW: HPQ Silicon $ Discusses International Development Agreement With Solar Silicon Specialist Apollon Solar $FSLR $SPWR $CSIQ $NEP

HPQ Silicon provided its shareholders with an early Christmas present this year when it announced a major partnership with Apollon Solar, private French company that has become one of the world’s leaders in renewable energies. More than just lip service, the following indicates that HPQ has obtained a world-class solar partner:

” [Apollon Solar] Has obtained, with the ANU (Australian National University) and independently confirmed by Fraunhofer ISE, a world record conversion efficiency of 21.1% with monocrystalline ingots, for a solar cell made with “SoG Si UMG”.

The importance of this partnership can not be overstated and can be summarized in two important points:

1. Validation – Prior to entering into this partnership, Apollon Apollon completed a technological audit of HPQ’s PUREVAP™ process and determined that success at the scaling up stage will lead to the production of solar quality silicon at a significantly lower cost compared to current market competitors.

2. Development – As if HPQ Silicon didn’t already have a powerhouse partner in Pyrogenesis Canada, Apollon’s abilities will be added to the team for the purposes of carrying HPQ Silicon all the way to the production of high performance multi-crystalline and monocrystalline solar cells.

The combination sets up HPQ for an exciting 2018 – and after going into a self-imposed “communications blackout” for reasons that have now become happily apparent, nobody wants to talk about this more than HPQ CEO, Bernard Tourillon.
