Our Silicon Production Process | Mississippi Silicon

Our Process. The basic process for producing silicon has remained unchanged for decades: quartz or gravel (SiO2) is blended with a carbon source and superheated in a submerged arc furnace. As the mix heats, the carbon reacts with the oxygen in the quartz and forms CO gas, thereby reducing the quartz to 99% silicon in molten form.

History & Silicon | Simcoa

Silicon (chemical formula Si) is a stable, relatively light, lustrous, grey element. It doesn't occur in nature in its elemental form but combines with oxygen and other elements to form oxides or silicates. Silicon, occurring in these forms, is the second most abundant element on Earth (oxygen being the most abundant). The combination of silicon with oxygen (SIO2) forms the mineral silica.
