Silicon: mining and processing Britannica

In this plant in Kristiansand the clean quartz is processed into high-purity silicon. The rock is melted in a furnace at 4,000 degrees and the silicon purified even further. The process itself is similar to that used in steel production and is why this molten rock is often referred to as metallurgical silicon.
