Dow Corning plans to invest up to $13 million in a Solar Energy Exploration/Development (SEED) center in order to expand its Europe-based research in silicon-based materials and technologies.
The SEED center will include the European Solar Solutions Application Center, which will focus on advancing the company's technology for use in photovoltaic cells. Construction is expected to begin later this year.
The European Solar Application Center will enable engineers and scientists to work with customers to develop, evaluate and test silicon-based materials solutions used to make solar cells, Dow Corning says.
