Climate Change: China’s GCL Poly Energy ramps up production of cheaper, more efficient solar panel materials

  • The firm is readying plans to increase its capacity to produce so-called granular silicon products next month
  • The reduction in the carbon footprint of the production process is equivalent to planting 2.2 million trees per year, GCL claims
