Hemlock Semiconductor, once the world’s largest polysilicon producer, pays the price for the fact that U.S.-based suppliers are effectively shut out of China, the biggest polysilicon market. The company has announced that it will lay off 100 employees at its plant in Michigan, most of them in the first quarter of 2018.
