Development of technology for the production of copper component and pastes used in the manufacture of silicon

CBRTP realizes a research and development project in the field of material engineering that can replace costly silver-based metal products by an alternative product developed within the project based on copper particles. The results of the projects are used in the world’s photovoltaic products.

Innovativeness and uniqueness of project is production of a new type of component on the base of copper, enabling development of paste with Cu on the level of 50-90% in terms of weight and its implementation in development of front solar cell electrodes produced on the basis of mono and polycrystalline silicon. Implementation of project will result in decrease of cost of metallization of silicon cell even down to 50% by substituting, cost consuming silver, with a lower cost generating copper component. New type of component will enable simultaneous marking of routes of electrode of a low cost method of screen printing, without necessity to change machinery park used by solar cell producers, which should be recognized as a highly innovative product of a global potential usage.

The new product made under this project will be offered on the global market as an alternative to the current contact pastes. The design concept is based on the technology developed by the Polish group of scientists from the Institute of Metallurgy and Engineering Materials of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CBRTP S.A. Strategic Partner ) and shared to CBRTP under a license agreement.

The effect of the project will be ecologically significant, because the ever-increasing prices of raw materials used to produce contact pastes (silver) resulting from declining natural resources determine the need to search for alternative materials that can both lower the price of a product and preserve the currently used machine park used in the process of the production of electrical contacts. The fall of  price of solar power generation equipment will allow them to be more widely used both in industry and home installations and thus contribute to the increase production of energy in OZE.

Developing a technology for the recovery and re-cycle of recylate based on postconsumer PET-G film contaminated with colour print

Recycling of film

 

projekt5Together with partners, CBRTP is implementing the research and implementation project in the field of materials engineering thanks to which commonly used colour film after treatment will be re-used in the production processes of polymer materials. The effects of the project will benefit manufacturers of packaging dedicated to the food, cosmetic, and medical sectors.

Recycling of contaminated colour printed film was not possible until now. The effect of the project will have a significant environmental dimension because the product is one of the most difficult biodegradable materials, and its disposal through thermal utilization or common storage is a huge problem in all of Europe.

CBRTP developed a unique concept of cooperation never used before – a consortium agreement with elements of license agreement. Within the scope of research collaboration it assumes granting the Leader exclusive rights to the results obtained in exchange for the guarantee of shares of research partners in the Leader’s revenues from the project for a minimum of 15 years after its completion. Such a constructed model, at the initial stage sanctioning a future share in proceeds generated based on joint scientific and research cooperation, is innovative in building lasting relationships of research centers with industry and a huge economic potential.

 

Within the framework of cooperation in the field of film recycling, CBRTP, as co-author, made the patent application at the European Patent Office.
