Silane Manufacturing Technology
Silane is quickly being recognized as a game-changer in the battery materials industry. Its ability to enhance the performance and lifecycle of lithium-ion batteries has spiked demand creating an urgent need for electronic-grade silane production.
Koch Modular offers a patented and proven silane manufacturing technology that can be scaled and delivered as a complete modular process system. Our technology integrates into new or existing facilities to sustainably produce onsite electronic-grade silane. With a unique modular delivery model, we provide the flexibility manufacturers desire, allowing scalable capacity as demand increases.Get A Quote
Unlock The Power Of Onsite Silane Production

High PurityElectronics-grade silane
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.
