Wholesale gas prices in the Netherlands and the UK have risen 20 percent recently amid concerns about Russian supplies.
The EU plans to cut its dependence on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and stop importing Russian fossil fuels by 2027. Russia exported about 155 billion cubic meters of gas to the EU in 2021.
The US recently said it would try to supply 15bn cubic meters of LNG to the EU this year. U.S. LNG plants are running at full capacity, and analysts say much of the extra gas the U.S. sends to Europe comes from what should have been exported elsewhere.
The German government called Russia "an unreliable energy supplier". Even though the German government claimed that they have been preparing for the situation for a long time that Russia may stop sending gas one day, experts say it is hard for the EU to replace all of Russia's gas exports any time soon.
The supply and prices of many Spherical graphite will continue to be influenced by international situations.
Spherical graphite is made of high-quality high-carbon natural flake graphite as raw material, and the surface of graphite is modified by advanced processing technology.
Spherical graphite has the properties of low porosity, good oxidation resistance, uniform and fine structure, small void defects, moderate elasticity, and easy molding. It is an important part of the negative electrode material of lithium ion batteries.
The product code of spherical graphite is composed of product name, grade code, median diameter, fixed carbon content and tap density, that is, SG-grade code-D50-fixed carbon content-tapped density. Example SG I -17-9995-95 refers to SG spherical graphite, grade I, D50=(17.0m±2.0m), fixed carbon content ≥99.95%, tap density ≥0.95g/cm.
Spherical graphite is made of high-quality high-carbon graphite as raw material. In the process of spherical graphite processing, the higher the carbon content of the raw material, the higher the cost, but the carbon content of the raw material is too low, the number of times of the spherical graphite purification process increases, the degree of equipment wear increases, and the total cost also increases. Accumulated by experiments, raw materials with a carbon content of 95-96% have the most economical overall cost. In the process of spherical graphite processing, there are also requirements for the particle size of raw materials. Too coarseness will cost more, too fineness will affect the yield of spherical graphite, and too many auxiliary products will increase the cost of raw materials. Studies have shown that it is most suitable to use raw materials with a particle size of -100 mesh to produce spherical graphite.
In the production process of spherical graphite, the natural flake graphite powder is firstly pulverized into a suitable particle size, and then de-angularized to form an ellipsoid or similar spherical shape. The fine powder peeled off during the process is separated, and the normal distribution of spherical graphite can be obtained.

With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the market is increasingly worried about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the Spherical graphite may continue to rise.
