Air Products exhibited at this year’s European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Valencia, Spain, demonstrating its PV market offering.
Held at the Feria Valencia Conference and Exhibition Centre, visitors were able to get a closer look at a new amorphous silicon thin-film photovoltaic module manufactured by Signet Solar at its Mochau, Germany, facility using Air Products’ materials.
The Signet panel is a thin-film solar module manufactured in much the same way as thin-film transistor-liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCD) are produced. As one of the largest suppliers to the TFT-LCD industry, Air Products is ideally suited to provide the turnkey installation, operation and supply to Signet’s facility.
Besides the Signet module, the company’s new ChemGuard™ Teflon system for state-of-the-art POCl3 dopant delivery was also on display. In addition, Air Products exhibited in a visual presentation on 3rd September, entitled ‘Improved Dry Plasma Phosphorous Silicate Glass (PSG) Etch for Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells’.
