  • Siemens is the industry standard for polysilicon production and all new industry capacity coming on line is based on this manufacturing technology. Today all of REC Silicon’s existing capacity is based on SiemensThe main characteristics of Siemens technology are:Silane or TCS based proven technologyProduces ultra-pure polysiliconMeets a specific set of market needs. However, this technology hasHigher energy consumptionIt is a batch process, andNeeds additional product finishing to be usableREC’s vision is to find a cheaper way to supply polysilicon for the PV industry, which is why we decided to invest in the FBR technology and build Silicon III. The main characteristics of the FBR manufacturing process are:Proprietary REC technologyEnergy efficientContinuous production process, which all result inLower costGranular polysilicon is easy to handleWe are now ramping the FBR process to commercial scaleThe FBR technology is an important step toward REC’s goal, which is to supply cost-efficient PV solutions to the market to reach grid parity
