A research report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has found graphite to be the metal with the largest indicated potential shortage in the energy transition sector, followed by cobalt, vanadium and nickel
Automotive manufacturers globally have been setting up joint ventures to secure cathode active materials for the batteries they fit into their electric vehicles (EVs), but they have yet to engage with the equally important graphite active anode suppliers
Awareness and incorporation of environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) policies within the graphite market are slowly developing, with take-up greater downstream - especially in the anode sector - and among developing companies, sources told Fastmarkets.
