Anaxtal Silicon Introduction

  1. 1. ANAXTAL Silicon, LLC <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Stephen R. Schultz, CEO </li></ul><ul><li>1 (864) 477-0302 </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>
  2. 2. Overview <ul><li>Proprietary technology to produce silicon engineered for solar photovoltaic (PV) applications </li></ul><ul><li>Product cost 50% lower than current industry average with a premium granular format </li></ul><ul><li>Rapidly growing market for renewable energy and solar PV systems </li></ul><ul><li>Production of high purity silicon (99.9999% purity) for sale to silicon crystal growers and cell manufacturers </li></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon
  3. 3. Problem <ul><li>High cost has limited the market growth of solar photovoltaic power </li></ul><ul><li>Silicon is the largest single component in the cost of crystalline silicon solar modules </li></ul><ul><li>Photovoltaic system cost must be reduced to produce power at “grid parity” for the industry to achieve its potential </li></ul>
  4. 4. Solution: <ul><li>Anaxtal Silicon has technology to transform solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing by: </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing the cost of PV grade silicon </li></ul><ul><li>Enabling PV-cell manufacturers to integrate upstream into silicon production </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing capital costs by 90% </li></ul><ul><li>Substantially shortening lead times for capital expansion </li></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon
  5. 5. Business Model: <ul><li>Manufacture silicon granules for sale to crystal growers and integrated solar module manufacturers </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a robust manufacturing platform </li></ul><ul><li>Explore partnerships with integrated manufacturers for expansion with co-located facilities </li></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon Installed PV Systems Crystalline Silicon Wafers Cells Modules Silicon The Solar Photovoltaic Value Chain
  6. 6. Technology <ul><li>Feedstocks are cracked at high temperature to create high purity silicon </li></ul><ul><li>Enabled by proprietary silicon nitride liner technology </li></ul><ul><li>Reactor liner is created in place for purity and durability </li></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon
  7. 7. Marketing & Sales <ul><li>Direct sales of silicon granules to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Crystal growers: single and multi-crystalline </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integrated solar PV module manufacturers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Granular silicon is a premium format: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Increased batch stability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Crystal growth efficiency improvements </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Partnership with industry leaders to foster vertical integration </li></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon
  8. 8. Competition <ul><li>Siemens process developed for the needs of the semiconductor / electronics industry </li></ul><ul><li>Crystalline silicon is the industry standard </li></ul><ul><li>Thin film technologies – growing, but limited </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower cost and lower efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CIGS – copper, indium gallium diselenide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CdTe – cadmium telluride </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a-Si – amorphous silicon </li></ul></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon
  9. 9. Management Team <ul><li>Dave Witter – Founder and CTO: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Forty-six years experience in crystal growth and advanced materials technologies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Broad industry and academic experience with silicon and related fields </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Steve Schultz – President and CEO </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Twenty-eight years with Sealed Air Corp. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Demonstrated track record of developing high-growth businesses </li></ul></ul><ul><li>VP – Operations and Engineering </li></ul>ANAXTAL Silicon
