Podcast: Lithium January Market Outlook

27 January 2020

China's ministry of industry and information technology announced new regulations for the recycling of used new energy vehicle (NEV) power batteries. The regulations, with effect from 1 January, include new recovery rates for major battery metals. The recovery rate for nickel, cobalt and manganese should not be below 98%, while the rate for lithium must be above 85%.

The regulations are expected to increase supplies of battery metals such as lithium, nickel, cobalt and manganese. The additional supplies are likely to be mostly used in NEV batteries.
