HPQ Silicon Resources (HPQ) has released an update on advancements to the PUREVAPTM Nano Silicon Reactor (NSiR).

Led by technology provider PyroGenesis Canada (TSX:PYR), the PUREVAP NSiR development project continued to progress through the testing stage through the second half of 2021.

The PyroGenesis technical team performed a systematic analysis of the process that indicated that the Gen 1 PUREVAP NSiR needed to be re-designed and rebuilt to eliminate the internal sources of oxygen contamination.

The modified Gen 1.5 PUREVAP NSiR system was re-designed and built-in Q3 2021 and commissioned in Q4 2021, with promising preliminary results.

Once final adjustments are completed, expected in January, the system will be ready to produce new samples for third-party evaluation.

“For HPQ NANO, 2021 was the year of ‘Slow is Smooth & Smooth is Fast.’ While it may have taken us longer than we had expected to get here, we are here now, ready to revolutionize nano-silicon materials manufacturing for batteries, a market that is ready to explode,” said Bernard Tourillon, President and CEO of HPQ Silicon. 

Based on validation testing of the NSiR process, PyroGenesis determined that the NSiR can produce Nano Silicon Materials Powder at the throughput needed to allow for low-cost production of nano materials.

“The fact that we are getting closer to meeting a significant challenge in the development of lithium-ion batteries for the electric vehicle market not only proves that we are on the right track and with the right partner, but also validates our commitment as an emerging leader in providing CO2 reduction solutions,” remarked PyroGenesis CEO P. Peter Pascali.

PyroGenesis Canada, a high-tech company, is a leader in the design, development, manufacture and commercialization of advanced plasma processes and sustainable solutions.

HPQ Silicon is a Quebec-based innovative silicon solutions company that is developing a unique portfolio of high value-added silicon products sought after by battery and electric vehicle manufacturers.

Shares in HPQ Silicon Resources Inc. (HPQ) are down 2.0 per cent, trading at $0.49 per share as of 1:25 pm EST.
