Tackling the Silicon Decarbonization Challenge
Silicon for a Net-Zero World
Maana Electric’s groundbreaking process extracts metallurgical-grade silicon (MG-Si) without conventional carbothermal reduction, eradicating direct emissions from silicon extraction. The process is applicable across various feedstock, including low-grade materials like desert sand or mining tailings. Removal of direct emission and requalification of feedstock resources enhances the ecological footprint and significantly reduces operational costs.
LOW CO2 FOOTPRINT
Our process operates without the need for high-grade quartz, accommodating low-grade feedstock such as common desert sand or mining tailings.
BETTER ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
The pre-processing method maintains the integrity of the original feedstock, allowing its return to the environment.
LOW COST OF PRODUCTION
Utilizing inexpensive feedstock and easily scalable architecture enable a significant reduction in the production cost of MG-Si.
