Raw Materials


The basic component of a solar cell is pure silicon. Silicon is a gray, brittle chemical element that is, next to oxygen, the most abundant element found in nature. It makes up 28 percent of the Earth’s crust and can be found in materials such as quartz, agate, flint and common beach sand. Silicon is the main component in building materials like cement, brick and glass, as well as semiconductors and microchips.
