2. Access to forecasts and outlooks for all key battery materials

Sessions will include price data and outlooks for lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese and graphite, as well as insights into rare earths and black mass.

With the past year seeing huge volatility in the battery materials market, this year we will hold a Fastmarkets BRM Academy, which is a ‘back to basics’ one-stop shop to get up to speed with industry essentials, from material extraction to EV cell manufacturing.

We will also be holding a supply chain insights workshop and a pricing and hedging workshop to understand battery materials pricing and how it is evolving. This will involve a deep dive into Fastmarkets’ pricing methodology.

On the agenda:

  • ‘Lithium and battery raw materials supply and demand forecast’ with Will Adams, head of battery and base metals research, Fastmarkets
  • ‘Pricing outlook – addressing volatility in the lithium and battery raw materials pricing environment’ with Andreas Munz, Battery Materials, BASF, Gregor Spilker, director metals/energy research and product development, CME Group and Martim Facada, lithium trader, TRAXYS
  • Two new workshops: A supply chain insights workshop and Fastmarkets hosted pricing and hedging workshop

3. Join over 50 seminars on the future of battery materials

As the US market responds to supply chain challenges and the security of battery materials supply, we look at new battery chemistry innovations, extraction techniques and the leading trends and technologies to leverage the increasing recycled supply.

Discover more about how policy is affecting battery materials, the Inflation Reduction Act and the future of the government policy. Get to grips with current ESG concerns and how to address these, including the responsible sourcing of materials, sustainable extraction technologies and addressing water footprint. Discover more about innovation in cathodes and anodes, the next generation of batteries and funding and investment insights.
