About HPQ-Silicon Resources Inc.
HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (TSX-V: HPQ) is a Canadian-based company that offers innovative silicon (Si)-based solutions and is developing a unique portfolio of high value-added silicon (Si) products sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers.
Silicon (Si), also known as silicon metal, is one of today's key strategic materials needed for the decarbonization of the economy and the Renewable Energy Revolution ("RER"). However, silicon does not exist in its pure state and must be extracted from quartz (SiO2) in what has historically been a capital and energy-intensive process.
With PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (NASDAQ CM: PYR), a high-tech company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma - based processes, HPQ is developing the PUREVAP TM "Quartz Reduction Reactors" (QRR), an innovative process (patent pending), which will permit the one-step transformation of quartz (SiO2) into high purity silicon (Si) at reduced costs, energy input, and carbon footprint that will propagate its considerable renewable energy potential. Through its 100% owned subsidiary, HPQ NANO Silicon Powders Inc., the PUREVAP TM Nano Silicon Reactor (NSiR) is a new proprietary process that can use different purities of silicon (Si) as feedstock, to make a wide range of nano/micro spherical powders of different sizes and nanowires.
HPQ continues working with industry leader Apollon Solar of France, to develop the hydrogen generation potential of Silicon nanopowders for use with the Gennao TM system and to commercialize, exclusively in Canada, and non-exclusive in the U.S.A., the TREKHY H2, a portable hydrogen-based mini-power generator system and the chemical powders required for the hydrolysis production of hydrogen ("H2").
