Why Invest in HPQ?
High Environmental Impact
We plan to use coal ash as raw material for our factory.
Untreated coal ash from thermal power plants is one of the main environmental problems in Asia
Stable and Growing Market
Use of High Purity Quartz is growing, and the demand is basically higher than the supply, with high market prices and quite monopolized supply.
Ready to Begin
Everything is ready to start - technology, team, sales, industrial park, financial model and detailed plans. We have signed Letters of Intent with several buyers, so we are expecting revenue from day one of production.
You can visit our office and project site at any time. In addition, we will be updating our investors on our progress through our website and social media.
Unique and Exciting Technology
Our technology is a novel approach to produce high purity and ultra-pure quartz. Originally developed for a university research project in Moscow more than ten years ago, we have thoroughly tested this technology over the past few years, and are very excited by the results.
We have a very experienced team to make this project successful and become one of the leading global companies in the industry.
Innovative Green Technology
Our technology is environmentally friendly. Instead of the classic method of quartz purifying (taking out the impurities which produces lots of harmful waste), we “take” only pure quartz out of raw material which can be quartz sand of any purity. Reagents are recycled and used in the production process again and again. Our unique production process leaves no hazardous waste.
An Industry Ripe for Disruption
There is limited competition in the global HPQ industry with two dominating players, Unimin and The Quartz Corp, handling more than 80% of global production. It has taken us a few years to test, but we now have the technology to disrupt this industry and create a truly unique production process.
2004 - 2013
From laboratory to pilot production /done/
From invention of the technology in 2004, it took nearly 10 years to build a complete pilot production line in 2012-2013.
Plan, Market & Buyers /done/
After successful completion of pilot production, we took a time to study the market, acquire buyers for the future production and prepare the detailed business plan. We have studied many places before choosing the best for our project.
2nd pilot production /done/
We had a unique opportunity to test our technology at real factory-made equipment. Trial production proved our technology and product’s quality again.
2018 - Feb, 2019
Investment round (open)
We are looking for investors to start our High Purity Quartz production line.
Mar, 2019 - Sep, 2019
Set Up Factory
We will set up the factory in our chosen industrial park: complete all paperwork, build workshop and clean room, purchase machinery, equipment, supplies, etc.
We will start producing ultra high purity quartz in our factory.
2020 - TBA
We will continuously increase production capacity to meet market demand. We also plan to add other products like Si, quartz crucibles, SiC etc. (we do have the needed technologies).
Frequently Asked Questions
The soft cap is USD1,650,000 which will be enough for a 500 tpa (ton per annum) HPQ production line.
This is the minimum feasible production capacity.
The more we raise, the higher production capacity we start with.
We can safely grow to 10,000 tpa and more as current confirmed demand from our buyers is higher.
For coal ash recycling facility, we need extra min. USD1,200,000 which can be increased safely.
HPQ = High Purity Quartz = High Purity Silica = High Purity Silicon Dioxide (SiO2)
Quartz, also known as silicon dioxide or silica, SiO2, is one of earth’s most abundant minerals and occurs in many different geological settings. It is best-known for its use in glass manufacturing, but also has uses across a variety of industries requiring differing levels of SiO2 content. It is a necessary element for the production of any modern gadget – for example, mobile phones.
HPQ is usually a white powder. It can be defined as having at least 99.995% SiO2 content. However, the main focus is always on the non-SiO2 content of the quartz.
HPQ is broken down into different categories depending on the impurities found in the quartz. 5N has a purity of ‘five nines’ – 99.999%. i.e contains 10 parts per million (ppm) of impurities (0.001%), 6N is six nines – 99.9999%. i.e contains 1 part per million (ppm) of impurities (0.0001%). The impurity level is highly critical for high tech industries. For buyers, even ten ppm purity difference matters. That is why 99.998% is much more expensive than 99.997%. Higher purity means lower impurities content of critical impurities like P, B, Li, Al, etc.
HPQ is the basic material for electronic, optical, lighting and solar (PV) industries. It is used in solar elements, semiconductors, optical fibres, lenses, crucibles, telecommunications, etc.
Soft cap lets us start with a minimum feasible production capacity (500TPA). At the same time, demand from our buyers for Ultra High Purity Quartz is over 10,000TPA which is 20 times higher. In our aggressive development plan, we aim to produce 30,000TPA of HPQ in the next 5 years. So if we raise more now, we will be able to increase production capacity much faster. We also want to add another grade product (STD) that is needed by our buyers.
For the time-being, we can safely go up to 10,000TPA of HPQ just to meet confirmed existing demand.
For the lower grade quartz the market is expected to reach about 3.7 million tons till 2020. So our coal ash recycling capacity can be increased safely.
- We don’t require pre-mined quartz – we can use sand of nearly any quality as the raw material. There is no need for quartz mines and expensive materials
- Purity is not limited by technology – it is only limited by the production environment
- No requirement for very high temperatures
- No requirement for hazardous chemicals so no hazardous waste
- Most reagents are recycled and re-used
- We have less steps than in the standard technology process
- Low production cost
- Higher quality / purity of the product
This is a special room that is assembled inside of the workshop to keep the needed environmental standards (low dust, etc.) – that is why it is called “clean”. It is like the inside of an operation room at a hospital.
We need this room to prevent any impurities from entering the product/production process from outside, so that we can keep the purity until we have packed the quartz.
