A Swedish innovation, known as HTCVD, makes it possible to produce high-quality silicon carbide (SiC). One of the inherent advantages is the high purity of the material produced. With the availability of high-quality silicon carbide guaranteed it would become possible to make electronic systems drastically more efficient, thus significantly reducing environmental impact and saving energy. The recently founded company Norstel AB will utilise this proprietary technology for industrial-scale manufacturing of SiC in a plant currently being constructed in Norrköping, Sweden.
