Products, Facts & Figures
The creation of a supply of mainly renewable energy sources is one of the 21st century's major challenges. In this respect, the sun and the wind play an essential role in a future energy mix. The key raw material for manufacturing solar cells is polysilicon – the purest material to permit large-scale production worldwide. Being an industrial-scale producer of hyperpure polysilicon since 1959 has made WACKER a pioneer in this growth market.
Setting a high standard of product quality and process sustainability, WACKER POLYSILICON is a major technology driver and leading supplier of high-purity polysilicon. Alongside solar technology, the semiconductor-electronics sector is another promising area in which polysilicon plays a vital role. There is thus an ever-growing worldwide demand for polysilicon. For this reason, WACKER is constantly expanding its production capacities. Hyperpure polysilicon gives our customers a crucial competitive edge throughout the solar supply chain and serves as a central starting point for added value in semiconductor electronics.
