CRU will provide a deep dive into the supply and demand dynamics within the anode grade coke market, highlighting the dominance of Chinese green coke importers in the 3rd party low sulphur GPC merchant marketplace. CRU will examine the future demand profile and how the move toward “cleaner” energy will influence the aluminium and anode grade coke industry over the medium term.
