Energy is one of the most important problems the world faces. Renewable energy sources are one answer to limited resources. Photovoltaic, wind power, and fuel cell technology are true growth markets with high potential for innovation.
For these markets, H.C. Starck offers innovative product solutions that
assist in the collection and storage of renewable energy, and that help
improve energy efficiency.
Our molybdenum sputter targets are used as coating materials for back
contacts in thin-film solar cells. Their superior density, optimized
metallic microtexture, and individual design options enable a longer
target life, making them an ideal response to the increased pressure to
reduce manufacturing costs. Our molybdenum is extruded in North America
in the world’s largest extrusion press for technology metals, and is
used in applications such as wind turbine heat sinks. Naturally we also
offer customers interesting recycling options here as well.
our special ceramic and metallic materials and components, we are also
involved in extending the applications for fuel cells. With their high
efficiency, these energy-saving cells are particularly environmentally
