The main objective of this 4 year project is to demonstrate a patented novel industrial process to produce silicon (Si, a critical raw material), enabling a shift from today´s process to a far more environmentally and economically alternative: in SisAl Pilot quartz in slag is reduced though aluminothermic reduction that utilizes secondary raw materials such as aluminium (Al) scraps and dross, as replacements for carbon reductants used today.
