How It Works

Our two-step silane process technology reacts metallurgic-grade silicon (MGS) with hydrogen and silicon tetrachloride (STC) to convert it into a high-purity trichlorosilane (TCS) intermediate via hydrochlorination.


Purification & Recycling

Step one purifies the TCS, recovers STC for recycling, collects waste streams for concentration to recover chemicals for recycling, and collects inert solids for disposal. While the purification step is crucial to achieving electronics-grade purity, the STC recycling step is equally important for sustainable and cost-effective processing with minimal waste.


Reaction & Distillation

Step two converts TCS to silane (SiH4) through two reaction steps and several distillation steps. The two disproportionation reactions involved are TCS to DCS and STC, and DCS to Silane and various chlorosilanes. Multiple distillation steps are incorporated to efficiently and safely recycle chlorosilanes and remove known impurities.
