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.
