LLP MC "Kaz Silicon"- the first plant on the territory of Kazakhstan for the production of metallurgical silicon with a capacity of 5000 tons of per year. Launched in 2006 in the town of Ushtobe, this project is consistent with the Strategy of Industrial and Innovation Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, which is placed at the head of an organization of high-tech knowledge-intensive industries, and government import-substitution program, designed to shift the economy of the country to build production facilities for industrial production of import-substituting and export-oriented production.

The project is part a of the state program on the creation of silicon industry in Kazakhstan, designed to move the economy from production and sales of cheap quartz raw materials to the production of valuable import products, ie to the production of metal, polycrystalline silicon and solar panels.

Stage 1 - open quarrying, mining quartz vein;

Step 2 - Create the production of silicon metal Si> 99%;

Stage 3 - the creation of high-tech production of silicon metal of high quality Si 99,9 - 99,95%.

As feedstock the plant uses vein quartz of Sarykulskoe deposit located near c. Ushtobe, Almaty region, with reserves of about 1.7 million tons. Original vein quartz is unique due to high chemical purity content of more than 99.5% SiO2.

The main metallurgical equipment was manufactured in China on the latest German technology. An automated process control system was developed and implemented.

System for the flue gas cleaning with dust collection efficiency up to 99% was automated, and allows not only to comply with environmental requirements, but also to produce up to 2,000 tons per year of additional products - micro silica that is in high demand abroad.

Laboratory facilities are equipped with RF spectrometer S4 Pioneer made by Bruker company (Germany).

Currently, through the acquisition of 100% of the authorized share, the Partnership entered as a subsidiary of the National Atomic Company "Kazatomprom". Government adopted a program for the creation and development of the sector of solar panels for electricity, where LLP MC «Kaz Silicon» has an important function for the production of "solar grade" metallurgical silicon.
