In the silicon metal industry, carbon serves as reducing agent in the production of elemental metallic silicon from silicon dioxide by application of extreme temparatures.
Silicon metal plays an important role in the aluminium, chemical, electronic as well as an increasing role in the solar industry. To obtain it, a very pure, very reactive and cost effective carbon carrier with a special grain size is needed.
Silero, ENERCO’s premier product especially designed for the silicon metal industry serves these needs. It has the desired characteristics: high reactivity, excelllent quality stability and low level contamination which ensures a particular silicon metal yield. Thanks to the product’s good performance and just-in-time-availability, ENERCO has become the market leader, supplying all major enterprises in the silicon metal industry world-wide.
Due to its purity, Silero is also used as raw material for the production of activated carbon.
