In an exciting lead up to season two, Joe and Emily record a special “bridge” episode to cover the lithium industry news over the last month. First they talk about all of the Drama in the Atacama, from Albemarle’s ongoing legal dispute with Corfo and the nuclear agency, to SQM’s efforts to block Tianqi’s acquisition of company shares. They discuss Ganfeng’s IPO in Hong Kong and the spinoff of “Livent” or LTHM from FMC, and what the outcomes spell for the industry. With all the interest in price transparency, especially in light of the LME’s efforts to launch a lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide contract price, Emily peppers Joe with annoying questions regarding whether that can really happen. All in all, the Global Lithium Podcast team is caught up and ready for Season 2!
