HPQ Materials (HPQM) will become a top 3 globally relevant producer/supplier of high purity silica sand, a necessary raw material essential for the manufacture of solar PV and semiconductors. Investment fundamentals are strong and aligned with climate change and innovation agendas in the high growth Solar PV and Electronics sector. HPQM provides a unique exposure to the solar PV and semiconductor supply chains in markets where demand is booming and access to high quality raw materials is key (analogous to battery storage/lithium markets).
HPQM own long-life, high purity quartz resources which are 99.99% pure silica in raw state and which allow for cost effective extraction and beneficiation to purity levels required by the markets we serve. High demand growth for our advanced materials is primarily driven by growth in the manufacture of Solar PV equipment which in turn is stimulated by growing demand for Solar PV as a renewable energy generation source. Solar PV is projected to significantly grow its share of the global energy mix as nations commit to renewable energy targets and reduce Co2 emissions in order to limit the impacts of global warming. HPQM has the asset base and expertise to contribute significantly to supporting the growth of Solar PV as a renewable energy source. We also seek to collaborate to create a new vertically integrated Solar PV industry.
HPQM look to serve equipment manufacturers in the semiconductor and high purity quartzware industries. Semiconductor growth will continue to be strong due to demand for digital connectivity of devices and other physical objects, known as the Internet of Things (IoT).
Our customers, potential customers and collaborators are invited to engage with us as we participate fully in the drive for a cleaner, smarter and healthier environment for future generations.
