Picking up where my first post 6N Silicon: Solar Grade Silicon from Ontario left off, a new 6N Silicon Corporate Presentation details key Milestones In Process (slide 9) for 2008 as shown in the image above.

Since my last search, a 6N Silicon international patent has been published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO):


The present invention provides for methods of purifying silicon, methods for obtaining purified silicon, as well as methods for obtaining purified silicon crystals, purified granulized silicon and/or purified silicon ingots.

Analysis of 6N Silicon’s process will have to wait for a future post.
