Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ Silicon, stated,

This image is a simple but powerful demonstration that after many years of efforts and support from our shareholders, we are about to start disrupting, on many levels, silicon manufacturing; an industry that still relies on a conventional process developed back in the 1890s.” 

HPQ Silicon boasts of being the only company bringing a new process for manufacturing silicon that is advancing alongside modern market needs.

“The reality of chronic underinvestment in new technologies combined with the offshoring of silicon production capacity is creating massive opportunities for HPQ and its PUREVAP QRR patented process,” Tourillon said.
