Polycrystalline Silicon

For those that watch to see what is happening in the world of polycrystalline silicon then I am sure you did not miss this yesterday. For the rest of us that just sorta follow the tech news, then make sure you have a to see the great news from Dow Corning and Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation. Just a snip from the press release.

Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation, the world’s leading producer of polycrystalline silicon, will invest up to $1 billion in the next 4 years to expand its Hemlock, Mich. facility. The expansion, which is expected to start coming online in 2010 will increase the company’s total annual output of polycrystalline silicon to 36,000 metric tons, an increase of 90 percent.

I wonder how much of this produced here in Michigan ends up in chips that Sun uses?

For what it's worth.
