HPQ Silicon (HPQ:TSXV) has switched gears in the last 2 weeks, with "commercialization" of their revolutionary silicon manufacturing technology taking center stage.On August 19th, CEO Bernard Tourillon stated:
"We are ready to start commercializing our PUREVAP™ QRR technology. We are aiming to completely revolutionize the economics of the $24B industry and create significant cash flow.In the coming months we will be meeting with end users..."
Then on September 4th, HPQ announced a 2nd patent filing, which can be inferred as very high confidence in the commercialization of the technology. In fact, the CEO of their technology partner, PyroGenesis Canada, stated as follows:
" “At PyroGenesis we have developed an approach to protecting Intellectual Property, and we have the patent portfolio to prove it. We only engage in patent applications where we feel (i) that we will prevail with an award and (ii) that there is commercial application to protect.”
The winds at HPQ Silicon have definitely shifted in the past 2 weeks. After 3 years of developing a new process for manufacturing silicon metal that is far cheaper and cuts green house gas emissions by as much as 90%, it appears HPQ and their world class partners - Apollon Solar and PyroGenesis - are making serious preparations to come to market.
