HPQ Silicon Resources (HPQ) and PyroGenesis Canada (PYR) have successfully produced the first batch of nano silicon materials.

The two companies have partnered to develop a method of producing nano silicon materials that reduces cost, energy input, and carbon footprint.

Together, they have created the PUREVAP Nano Silicon Reactor, a proprietary technology that will allow HPQ and PyroGenesis to commercialize silicon for battery anode materials.

This first batch is the last of HPQ’s three objectives for the testing program, which also included validating the reactor’s capabilities and production parameters.

Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ Silicon, commented on the milestone.

“The HPQ NANO team is now more confident than ever that the PUREVAP™ NSiR will be able to deliver, at scale, and on-demand, a nano silicon for anode production that will be cost competitive,” he said.

The next samples of nano silicon powders will be sent to the Institut National de Recherche Scientifique (INRS) for third-party evaluation.

“Words cannot adequately describe the excitement at PyroGenesis at potentially being able to address and solve challenges in developing lithium-ion batteries,” said PyroGenesis CEO and chair P. Peter Pascali.

Work will now begin on the next phase of development, creating the Gen2 PUREVAP Nano Silicon Reactor.

PyroGenesis Canada is engaged in the design, development, manufacture, and commercialization of advanced plasma processes and systems.

HPQ Silicon Resources is a Quebec-based solutions company that offers silica and silicon-based solutions for the electric vehicle battery market.

PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (PYR) is up 10.00 per cent, trading at $4.84 per share.

HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (HPQ) is up 18.87 per cent, trading at $0.63 per share as of 3:49 pm ET.
