Carbon reductants produced by Polchar are essential in metallurgical processes of silicon and silicon-based alloys (silicon, ferrosilicon, silico-manganese) production.

Main industries that use silicon products include:

  • manufacturing of semiconductors, electronics

  • chemical products (adhesives, isolations, sealants)

  • specialized steel (automotive)

  • medicine (endoprothesises, diagnostics)

  • production of aluminium and aluminium alloys
    (aviation, astronautics, renewable energy)

More than 80% of mobile phones
and more than 50% of computers worldwide
contain components, which were manufactured from silicon produced using Polchar’s carbon reductants.
