WACKER expands production capacity

News

New production line for cleaning polysilicon in semiconductor quality planned at the Burghausen site.

Wacker Chemie AG intends to expand its capacities for cleaning semiconductor-grade polysilicon. The plan is to set up a new production line at the Burghausen site by early 2025. Compared to the current status, the new systems increase the existing capacities there by well over 50 percent. Etching the polysilicon pieces is the critical production step to ensure the surface cleanliness of the material required for semiconductor applications. The investment volume for the entire project is expected to be in the region of over €300 million. This will create more than 100 new jobs at WACKER at the Burghausen site, as well as additional jobs at partner companies.

Group Chief Christian Hartel comments: “With this expansion project, we are setting another benchmark for the purity of polysilicon and thisj making an important contribution to our customers’ technology roadmaps.”
