From Sand to Cell, Reinventing Solar – Texas Solar Energy ...

Quartzite, the raw ingredient for solar, is composed almost entirely of quartz sand, or silicon dioxide (SiO 2). Complex chemical and physical processes, and large amounts of energy, are required to break the silicon/oxygen bonds and convert SiO 2 to pure silicon, up to 9N or 99.9999999 percent pure.
