Polycrystalline silicon producer REC Silicon sales

Polaris solar PV net news: producers of polysilicon, RECSilicon reports, due to demand for granular polysilicon in a fluidized bed reactor and raise prices at 4%, second-quarter revenue of $ 126.8 million, $ 113.3 million last quarter.

The company reported second-quarter operating profit of $ 24.6 million, while last quarter’s loss of $ 49.7 million. Improve the performance of the Silicon sector earnings before interest and tax (EBITDA) of $ 33.1 million.
