The cost reduction comes as Oerlikon Solar announces agreements with gas suppliers Air Liquide and Linde reducing the solar company's total cost of all gases and precursors by 20%.

“Thinks to the strong support from leading gas suppliers, we are now able to further reinforce the competitiveness of our Micromorph technology for current and future market conditions,” says Helmut Frankenberger, CEO of Oerlikon Solar.
