HPQ Silicon (HPQ) has announced a milestone reached by the GEN3 PUREVAP Quartz Reduction Reactor during the first process improvement test.

Technology provider PyroGenesis informed HPQ that the first process improvement test produced Silicon (Si) material. This confirms that the GEN3 QRR can generate the carbothermic reaction needed to produce Silicon.

Mr. Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ Silicon, commented on the achievement.

“We are in the ongoing process of continuous improvements of the testing program. Our unique and proprietary advanced technology prototype, the GEN3 QRR Pilot Plant, will undergo multiple tests to repeat and, we expect, surpass the results attained with the GEN2 QRR.”

During the process improvement test, quartz material was successfully converted into Silicon (Si), a process that validates that the GEN3 QRR can produce Silicon (Si) material.

All components of the Pilot Plant reactor are being inspected, and critical wear and tear data are being collected. Once the inspection is complete and all systems are given a “pass,” the Pilot Plant will be prepared for the next series of tests.

HPQ Silicon Resources is a Quebec-based innovative silicon solutions company developing a unique portfolio of high-value-added silicon (Si) products sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers.

HPQ-Silicon Resources Inc. (HPQ) is up 3.51 per cent on the day, trading at C$0.295 per share at 9:45 am ET.
