Elkem Solar Silicon® ESS® is a high purity silicon block for use as feedstock in ingot solidification for PV for PV application. Elkem Solar Silicon® ESS® is produced by five step metallurgical route.
Silicon for batteries
To support the upcoming market of silicon-based batteries, Elkem has utilised its vast experience in producing specialised silicon to develop tailored materials for final use as anodes of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. These are collected in our portfolio of Silgrain® e-Si products.
Silicon for plasma spraying
Elkem has been producing industrial volumes of high purity silicon for plasma spraying processes since 2007. Plasma spraying are used both for production of sputtering targets and direct surface coating. Our silicon is produced with both a well-defined bottom cut and top cut to give maximum yield in the plasma spraying process.
