AE Polysilicon Corporation

Alternative Energy Technologies for a Sustainable Future

What is Polysilicon?

is used as feedstock material in most solar energy applications like cells and modules. Polysilicon can be manufactured in two forms depending on the technology used for production, or with advantages and disadvantages alike. With fluidized bed reactor technology, polysilicon will be produced in a Granular BB form.

Our technology will utilize a fully integrated closed loop process. This process of production is noted for its environmentally friendly design and output. The fluidized bed reactor production technology is the most advanced process in the market today.

In order for the industry to expand and keep pace with demand, polysilicon production must be increased. However, the technological and financial challenges of building polysilicon facilities make it difficult to enter the industry. These hurtles have created lucrative opportunities for companies who can successfully produce solar-grade polysilicon efficiently.

Why AE's Polysilicon BB's?

It is part of our vision to improve not only polysilicon production technologies, but also enable our customers to achieve further advancements in their ingot production and cell efficiencies. By improving production technologies, we can increase efficiencies and decrease fabrication costs far beyond previous technologies permitted, building a more cost competitive solar industry. It is our keen objective to advance technologies in order to build a more sustainable future.

Our Polysilicon BB's are advantageous in many ways including:

  1. Enabled innovations in high-speed, high-volume processing for technologies such as Continuous CZ and EFG

  2. Lower energy expenditures, higher throughput, and reduced downtime

  3. Increased crystal growth yields while decreasing pulling and operational costs

The solar industry will advance through a rapid transition in the development and research of materials, devices, and processes. Our crystalline silicon provides a market-proven industrial manufacturing infrastructure with superior advantages. However, in order for crystalline technology to remain dominant in solar technologies, cells and modules will need to be much more easily manufactured while maintaining the highest efficiency. In order to do this, focus will be placed on high throughput processing throughout the supply chain. High throughput processes for crystalline-silicon photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing are available and continue to develop new cell and module designs that enable higher throughput processing and development of fundamental process models.  

To do this, our Research and Development team will work diligently with our downstream customers in optimizing both our and their production technologies. Efficient and resourceful processing of silicon will require a thorough understanding of the silicon material and its effects on ingot and wafer growing, specifically the effects of defects in impurities and growth yields. We strive to understand the value our Polysilicon BB’s create for various participants in the supply chain. We work thoroughly to develop strategies to reduce silicon usage and waste, to increase efficiency, and to add value to our customer’s products.
