Project name: Organization of production of polycrystalline silicon-based innovative method of plasma desmearing of the melt

The main objective of the project is to create a technology of multicrystalline silicon of solar grade with an advanced method for plasma desmearing of silicon melt and the commercialization of this technology on an industrial scale.

Innovation lies in the fact that the proposed technology allows in a single production process to clean impurities from silicon and receive the final product without costly intermediate stages of chemical treatment.

The yield of silicon by this process is 35% higher than by the silane production technology, which is used by most multisilicon manufacturers in the world.

Implementation of the project is being built in three phases:

1. Performing research and development work to establish a pilot plant;

2. Creating an industrial multisilicon plant with production capacity of about 40 tons per year;

3. Distribution of the industrial plant to the level of production line with annual production capacity exceeding 200 tonnes.

Experts of "Solev" IC developed a business plan, including one in English language. Further, together with their partners "Solev" IC worked successfully to find investment in the project, which resulted in recieving funding of the Russian Venture Company - JSC "RVC".
