This study investigated the production of silicon from bamboo leaves to solve the challenge of silicon in solar market using Optimization approach. The effect of three independent variables of: temperature, time and amount of bamboo leaves were studied using Box Behnken design. The best process level observed from the Box Benhken Design and optimal predicted process were used to produce silica. It was then subjected to X-Ray Diffractometer to determine the most reactive silica. The most reactive silica observed was used to produce silicon. Silicon obtained was subjected to X-Ray Diffraction and Scanning Electron microscope. It was concluded that nanosilicon was produced which can be used as a solar cell component to solve the challenge presently in the solar market.
