January 26, 2011 – Asia PulseMulti-crystalline silicon players in China have to meet an access threshold that requires at least 30% of capital fund for any new and expansion projects, said in a joint statement by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National and Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

According to the statement, output capacity of new solar power multi-crystalline silicon projects would be no less than 3,000 tonnes/year, and that of semiconductor multi-crystalline silicon projects no less than 1,000 tonnes/year.

Besides, the Chinese government would suspend approvals to new multi-crystalline silicon projects recently.

Insiders believe that the newly published access threshold would highly promote integration within the multi-crystalline silicon industry, and several large multi-crystalline silicon companies might be formed in China in future.
