after shaking up nickel chinas tsingshan sets sights on lithium

Sumary of After shaking up nickel, China’s Tsingshan sets sights on lithium:

  • Tsingshan Holding Group, the Chinese firm that shook the nickel world by rapidly boosting output in Indonesia, is among the latest entrants to the white-hot lithium sector, potentially making it a one-stop shop for electric vehicle (EV) battery ingredients.
  • Tsingshan, predominantly a stainless steel maker, came out of nowhere to become the world’s top nickel producer in 2018 thanks to its pioneering use of low-grade nickel pig iron.
  • It and fellow Chinese company Chengxin Lithium Group Co will produce 60,000 tonnes per year of lithium chemicals at a lithium processing facility in Indonesia, Chengxin has said in a company filing, the first announcement of such a plant in the country.
  • Added to the battery-grade nickel and cobalt production already under development at its Indonesia facilities, the lithium supplies would make Tsingshan a major scale producer of three key ingredients required for EV and other rechargeable batteries.
  • Tsingshan did not respond to a request for comment on its lithium plans, but a company executive told Reuters the “battery business will become a new core business.
  • “Tsingshan owns 35per cent of the project, and Chengxin 65per cent.
  • No start date for the lithium plant has been given, and it still faces challenges.
  • A Chengxin official told Reuters it will need 450,000 tonnes of lithium concentrate annually for the project, all from hard-rock lithium ore.
