Russia's insistence on paying for Russian gas in rubles has rattled European countries: Greece held an emergency meeting of suppliers, the Dutch government would urge consumers to use less gas, and the French energy regulator told consumers not to panic. Russian gas meets one-third of Europe's annual energy needs.
Russia said they could expand their demand for ruble payments for other commodities, including oil, grain, fertilizer, coal, and metals, which raised the risk of recession in Europe and the US.
Moscow is expected to unveil its ruble payment plan in early April, but it said it would not immediately ask buyers to pay for gas in rubles.
Western countries have said paying in rubles would be a breach of contract, and renegotiation could take months or longer. This uncertainty has pushed commodity market prices higher.
The supply and prices of other commodities like the Spherical graphite could also be affected.
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.
