Research & Development
Based in Braunschweig, the most research-intensive region in Europe, we develop environmentally friendly solutions along the entire value chain - from raw materials to silicon-based applications - in close exchange with science and industry partners.
Our research projects
along the value chain
Today, silicon is extracted from quartz and coal in electric arc furnaces. We are researching new, energy-efficient production processes and the use of renewable raw materials.
Currently, our focus is on the recycling of saw waste and we are continuously developing our technologie.
In addition to silicon, solar modules contain a variety of valuable raw materials such as glass, plastics, metals and precious metals. With our spin-off Solar Materials and together with the IWF of TU Braunschweig, we are developing a unique recycling process.
