DuPont will soon begin constructing a research center in Hong Kong and a manufacturing facility in Shenzhen to support the solar photovoltaic energy industry – particularly the amorphous silicon (a-Si) thin film market.

‘Through investments in materials, technology development and manufacturing, DuPont is accelerating its ability to deliver innovations that will improve the lifetime and efficiency of photovoltaic modules, and also have enough production capability to help keep pace with the fast rising global demand,’ says David B. Miller, group vice president for DuPont Electronic & Communication Technologies.

DuPont says it expects the increase in demand for thin-film solar to drive specifications for both new and existing products, including DuPont's Butacite, SentryGlas, Elvax, Tedlar and Solamet.
