DuPont Plans PV R&D and Production

DuPont announced it will soon begin construction on a research center in Hong Kong and a manufacturing facility in Shenzhen to support the growing solar photovoltaic (PV) industry.

DuPont expects growth in the PV market to exceed 30 percent in each of the next several years. The expansions in Hong Kong and Shenzhen will provide new offerings to serve 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,” said David Miller, VP of DuPont Electronic & Communication Technologies.
