HPQ-Silicon Resources Inc operates as a metal mining and exploration company in the Canadian basic materials sector that exclusively focus on silicon-based products and solutions.
HPQ-Silicon Resources Inc is a publicly listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, and its common stocks are traded under the ticker symbol ‘HPQ’.
The Montreal-based silicon manufacturer also trades its common stocks on the OTCQX Best Market and the Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse (FWB) under the stock symbols ‘HPQFF’ and ‘UGE’, respectively.
HPQ-Silicon Resources manufactures and develops nano silicon materials and nanowires that include silica (SiO2) and silicon (Si), which are used in silicon metal applications across different sectors.
The company provides various silicon grades for different applications.
The metallurgical grade silicon is used by steel and aluminum industries for metallic alloys. It is also crucial for the automobile industry.
Chemical grade silicon is processed from silica within quartz rock and the resultant product then undergoes a carbothermic process and further refined through hydro-metallurgical operations for producing chemical grade silicon.
It is used in silicon polymers and the photovoltaic industry.
Silicon is used in lithium-ion batteries and enhances the efficacy and performance of the battery, the mineral exploration firm claims.
It is primarily used in the energy storage industry.
HPQ provides its PUREVAP™ technology in three different segments, GHG, OPEX and CAPEX disruption.
The greenhouse gas (GHG) disruptive Quartz Reduction Reactors (QRR) process involves the formation of solar grade silicon (SoG-Si) for manufacturing solar cells and modules used in solar energy plants.
CAPEX disruption comprises upgraded metallurgical grade process that can minimize the material inputs and enables low capex to manufacture UMG silicon metals.
An OPEX disruption reduces the operating expenses while manufacturing solar grade silicon, the firm claims.
In addition, HPQ-Silicon Resources markets and distributes Trekhy, an autonomous fuel-based power generator, that provides 30 watts of electricity to portable equipment and is ideal for disaster relief, military and security and outdoor adventure.
In a press release dated June 10, 2021, HPQ-Silicon Resources Inc announced its plans to commission the GEN3 PUREVAPTM Quartz Reduction Reactors (QRR) project in the last quarter of 2021.
