Reuters published an article that the Chinese network, China promulgated the ban on imports of scrap silicon, for foreign competitors may be bad news, but it can greatly stimulate the domestic photovoltaic industry.

Beginning this month, China has strictly enforcing environmental laws and regulations are no longer imported scrap polysilicon. The material is a low-grade silicon material, the quality is not enough to make electronic chips, but they can re-use, manufacture photovoltaic wafers.

The ban will affect the income of the domestic waste polysilicon traders, but also will shrink the market of suppliers, including the world's leading foundry TSMC.

For the domestic photovoltaic industry, emerging businesses, as they mainly rely on scrap polysilicon feedstock to produce such a low-cost photovoltaic wafers and battery plates, suffered from the impact on the more serious.

But for Poly HS Xin photovoltaic energy, and Savi LDK polysilicon, etc., of domestic enterprises, the ban is a good opportunity to expand their business. Meanwhile, the ban for OCI Chemical Corporation, South Korea, the United States and Japan, MEMC Electronic Materials Tokuyama and other foreign countries may pose a threat to the industry.

Photovoltaic panels manufactured in China accounted for more than Liucheng global production, but also the world's largest pure poly-silicon and various silicon scrap consumer. Some Chinese manufacturers of photovoltaic wafers and solar panels, the abolition of polysilicon raw materials accounted for the proportion of up to 30%.

"This provides some degree is emerging polysilicon in order to protect domestic industries." Round-based environmental capital, Chief Executive Officer, Professor KC Chan says. "Due to excess supply of polysilicon, the industry needs to get help."

Polysilicon enterprises in China's current surplus supply of the material despite the substantial increase in production, the official in this context introduced the import ban.

GCL Poly Energy in June acquisition of 3.4 billion U.S. dollars worth of photovoltaic assets, end of the year is expected to produce about 7,500 tons polysilicon. LDK Solar LDK Solar plans in 2010 production reached 5,000 tons of polysilicon.

Tianwei Yingli, Yuhui Sun shares of energy companies, and Tung-wai, etc. can benefit from.

Due to the credit crunch to make photovoltaic project funds nearly depleted polysilicon oversupply situation is very serious, to bring great impact on the industry. Polysilicon prices highest since 2008 when a drastic shrinkage of 400 U.S. dollars per kilogram to 69 U.S. dollars.
