Battery Metals – fueling a global revolution

Fueling a global revolution looks at the demand and supply of the battery metals and explains the pricing trends in Lithium, Cobalt, and Spodumene over recent months. The presentation will also identify where bottlenecks in the battery metals industry are likely to be and how these could be overcome. Indeed, limited use of hedging mechanisms for Lithium is a true sore spot for listed companies and the presentation will give buyers and sellers an insight into how this problem could be solved.

  • Spreads between seaborne and Chinese domestic Battery Grade Lithium and Cobalt prices which have been volatile over recent months.
  • Mechanism to manage risk and what market participants can do to manage price risk in the battery metals industry.
