Chinese graphite prices keep rising
By ALBERT LI, DAVIDE GHILOTTI
Published: Monday, 31 July 2017
QUOTE
Plus mesh graphite grades have posted another sharp increase by end-July while minus mesh grades have stabilised.

Spot prices for Chinese plus mesh graphite have increased further over the past week, while other grades appear to have stabilised for the time being.

Following the price upticks seen in the graphite market in China in earlier weeks, the material has appreciated again for a number of specifications, while...

Interesting tie up - LEM owns the Woxna Graphite production facility in Sweden - it was previously named Flinders Resources, who merged with Tasman Metals - both companies are involved with critical raw materials used in LIB's - graphite, lithium and cobalt.

Leading Edge Materials Partners with Sweden’s Northvolt in InnoEnergy Battery Project
Published by Craig P at 27th July 2017

QUOTE
Vancouver, Canada – Leading Edge Materials Corp. (“Leading Edge Materials”) or (the “Company”) (TSXV:LEM) (OTCQB: LEMIF) is pleased to announce the partnering with Northvolt AB as a part of an innovation project agreement with InnoEnergy for the establishment of a Large Scale Battery Manufacturing Project in Sweden. The aim of the project is that LEM will contribute to the production of battery cells through qualification of sustainably produced natural graphite.

The project is focused on developing the conditions for a local source, very low CO2 impact and leading cost structure for battery cell manufacturing.

Blair Way, President and CEO, stated “This is an exciting time for the lithium ion battery market and we are very pleased to be a part of such an important project in the EU. The demand for lithium ion batteries is forecast to be strong as the world shifts to low emission transport and storage options. It is an excellent opportunity to participate in a program such as this to demonstrate our ability to be an important part of the supply chain for large scale lithium ion battery manufacturing.”

Chinese graphite prices rebound on output cut
By ALBERT LI
Published: Friday, 21 July 2017

QUOTE
Prices for some graphite grades in China have rebounded since the country's export tax was cancelled in January.

Spot prices for some Chinese graphite grades have increased this week as producers raised their offers amid environmental restrictions on output in China.

"Unlike before, producers were not united; they were fighting in price wars for years," one producer in Shandong told IM

Carbon & chemicals: H12017 trade in review for graphite
Posted by Dimpal on July 20, 2017
Natural & synthetic graphite

QUOTE
The graphite industry is poised for significant growth to 2026, with robust demand growth forecasts from lithium-ion battery anodes and increasing competition between natural and synthetic graphite in this application.

Trade in synthetic graphite was dominated by electrodes and artificial graphite. Artificial graphite has seen the highest level of growth at 3.9%py 2006-2016, while electrode trade has grown marginally at 0.3%py. Trade in other categories declined over the same period. China is the main exporter for four of five synthetic graphite categories (excluding entrepôt trade through the Netherlands).

Since 2009, Malaysia has grown rapidly to become the largest importer of artificial graphite, accounting for less than 1% of imports in 2006 but 46% by 2016, in addition to traditional import markets in the USA and Japan. Imports of electrodes to Iran also grew through 2012/2013; although imports have since fallen back, Iran was still the largest importer in 2016, accounting for 10% of electrode imports.

Exports of natural graphite have declined over the last decade. Exports reached a high of around 72% of production in 2007 but have since fallen, due to China’s increasing domestic consumption and its continued shift towards higher value, processed exports. China is still the world’s largest exporter, accounting for 70% of natural graphite exports in 2016. In 2017, China removed its long standing 20% tax on exports of natural graphite. Exports of added value products continue to be encouraged; for example, a 13% tax rebate is available for exports of spherical graphite.

Chinese exports of flake graphite fell by an average of 0.4%py between 2006 and 2016. Other large exporters of flake graphite include Brazil, Germany, the USA and Canada. Global exports will increase in future if flake graphite production rises outside China. China could even begin to import flake graphite from new sources, if it maintains its monopoly on the expanding lithium-ion battery supply chain.

Chinese exports of amorphous graphite fell in early 2017 in line with falling global demand and cuts to Chinese capacity. The rate of decline is expected to slow in the coming years as the replacement of amorphous graphite with alternative products becomes more complete.

Japan has been the largest destination for natural graphite shipments for many years, but its proportion of global imports fell from 37% in 2006 to 12% by H1 2017. Germany and the USA are also major importers, accounting for a further 10% each in H1 2017. The largest single trade flow of natural graphite is from China to Japan, which accounted for 12% of all flake graphite and 21% of all amorphous graphite shipments in 2016. This is followed by exports of flake graphite from China to India, Germany and the USA. The USA also imports large amounts of flake graphite from Mexico and Canada. A small number of major companies in North America and Europe import from international mining operations for processing, purification and blending. They then export finished products to international markets.

China still dominates the graphite to battery supply chain: from flake graphite mining, spherical graphite processing and synthetic graphite production, through to production of anodes and final battery manufacture.
