Project description

Objectives of the  FoXy project are:

  • Development of  cleaning and crystallisation processes for metallurgical SoG-Si feedstock
  • Optimisation of associated solar cell and module processes
  • Setting parameters for these types of feedstock.

By developing a close partnership along the whole value chain from feedstock to module production, a foundation is created for new investments in SoG-Si feedstock production and subsequent commercial use of the material produced.
