The only shareholder of “Tau-Ken Temir” LLP is a «National Mining Company «Tau-Ken Samruk” JSC. The raw material base of the silicon plant of “Tau-Ken Temir” LLP is quartz deposit Aktas, located in Ulytau district of Karaganda region. Quartz of the deposit is characterized by high purity, which makes it the most attractive raw material for smelting of high grade silicon. The total stock of quartz amounts to more than 4 million tons with an annual production volume of 72 thousand tons of
gangue quartz

Gas cleaning equipment purifies exhausted gas with the dust collection efficiency of more than 99%. Microsilica precipitated after purification of exhausted gas can be used in creation of concrete with high strength and durability at a fairly low hygroscopicity.
