China Warns of Export Curb on Polysilicon, Solar Wafers – PV Mag


Two Chinese ministries have warned that they are considering restricting exports of three technologies related to the booming solar energy sector and PV manufacturing, according to a report by PV Mag, which said wafers, black silicon, and ingot casting could be listed on the country’s Catalogue of Technologies Prohibited and Restricted for Export.

The ministries of Commerce and Science and Technology issued a joint statement saying the three technologies could be added to the restrictions list and if that happens manufacturers would need technology export licences from their provincial departments to export those products, the report said, noting that China’s PV industry body claims it produced more than 98% of all solar wafers in 2021.
