Today, the cost of PV-grade Si accounts for ~20% of PV modules. However, at least 40% of Si is lost at present during wafer production process. The market value of lost Si was 2.5B$ in 2014 and will continue increasing by 20%-30% p.a..
Plus MAT AG (+MAT) has developed a cost-effective and innovative technology to recover the lost Si micro-powder from PV sawing process for different applications.
