Why Polysilicon?

Originally, polysilicon was a base material for the electronics industry. In the course of industrialization of the photovoltaics indsutry, polysilicon became an essential part of the solar value chain.

SST Technology is a decisive step within the solar value chain from quartz to the grid. To use solar energy effectively, several process steps are necessary. SST Techology enables an energy-efficient, as well as cost-competitive purification process from metallugical silicon to high-purity polysilicon. Polysilicon is the base material for solar cells. The level of purity of the polysilicon is crucial for high efficiency in the solar cell.

Next to the solar industry, polysilicon is an important base material for the wafer- and electronics industry.
