Innovative pilot for Silicon production with low environmental impact using secondary Aluminium and silicon raw materials

Project description

A new path-breaking approach for silicones

Carbothermic reduction in the submerged arc furnace (SAF) is currently used for the production of silicones, which play a vital role in numerous industries from electronics and transportation to chemicals, cosmetics and construction. The EU-funded SisAl Pilot project is developing a cost-efficient and eco-friendly process alternative. The SisAl process encompasses aluminothermic reduction of quartz in slag using secondary raw materials, such as aluminium scrap and dross, as replacements for the carbon reductants used today. Featuring enhanced valorisation of waste and by-products streams, lower energy consumption, and reduced emissions of CO2 and harmful pollutants, it is described as a path-breaking approach. It also has a strong contribution to ‘circularity’ in which the aluminium industry will act as both a raw material supplier and end user.
