Polysilicon

Usage

Polysilicon is the basic core material for solar Solar PV industry, positioned at the very first step of the PV value chain, consists of ingots, wafers, cells, modules and solar power generation systems. OCI provides 10-Nine (99.99999999% purity) Polysilicon for solar power generation and 11-Nine (99.999999999% purity) for semiconductor wafers.

Production Process

Metal Silicon(MG-Si) is produced by reducing and melting Quartz. Metal silicon is then mixed with hydrogen and hydrochloric acid to produce high-purity trichloride silane (TCS). Then it undergoes chemical evaporation at high temperatures to produce high-purity solid Polysilicon.

OCI decided to intensively invest in and develop the key material for Solar PV. Polysilicon as the next-generation business as OCI considered that solar power was the fastest-growing business among alternative energies in 2006. OCI constructed the Gunsan Plant, with a capacity of 5,000t/yr. The second and third plants were added in 2009 and 2010, respectively. By increasing its production capacity by 10,000t/yr by debottlenecking (improving the production process) of the third plant in 2015 and acquiring Tokuyama¡¯s Malaysia polysilicon business in 2017, OCI has become the world¡¯s second-largest polysilicon producer with a total production capacity of 72,000t/yr.
