    Are the nickel and cobalt chemical markets shifting away from traditional pricing mechanisms?

    Nickel and cobalt chemical prices have traditionally been determined by their respective finished metal prices, but lately they have shifted towards each being priced independently. Both nickel and cobalt metal are not driven by battery demand, so participants in the chemical products markets are seeking alternatives.
    In this episode of the Platts Future Energy podcast Scott Yarham, Jesline Tang and Michael Greenfield explore what the current state of play is and the reported move by the market to seek alternative pricing practices.

    Crunch time for EU carbon market reform as legislators finalise negotiating positions

    Attempts to overhaul the EU Emissions Trading System have entered a crunch period as the European Parliament and European Council aim to finalise their negotiating positions by the end of June. The EU Parliament rejected draft legislation proposed by lawmakers in its plenary vote on June 8, but is preparing for a second vote on June 22. EU ETS revisions are being considered against a backdrop of very high energy prices, surging inflation and a military conflict on Europe’s eastern flank.
    S&P Global Commodity Insights' Frank Watson and Michael Evans take a deep dive into the key elements in the negotiations and why they matter for carbon prices and other energy commodity markets in Europe.

    US ethanol industry eyes CCS to boost long-term demand

    US ethanol industry eyes CCS to boost long-term demand

    As the US ethanol industry pursues carbon capture and sequestration projects, producers are looking at the effects of lower carbon intensities in markets with low carbon fuel standards and in future industries like sustainable aviation fuel produced from ethanol. The voluntary carbon credit market for technology-based carbon capture could also attract interest given high prices but hurdles could keep ethanol producers focused on regulated markets.
    S&P Global Commodity Insights' Americas biofuels manager Josh Pedrick talks through the evolving CCS interest in US ethanol with low-carbon lead Arsalan Syed and biofuel analytics manager Corey Lavinsky.
    This Future Energy podcast was produced by Felix Fernandez in London.

    How has China's 'zero-COVID' strategy impacted battery supply chains?

    China's "zero-COVID" strategy saw the country entering multiple provincial lockdowns. While this has hit electric vehicle production, the impact on battery materials production has been limited.
    Prices of battery metals, especially lithium, have fallen for the first time in 18 months.
    What implications do such events have on an already stressed supply chain, EV production costs and overall EV adoption?
    S&P Global Commodity Insights’ Henrique Ribeiro discusses these issues with pricing specialist Leah Chen and analyst Lucy Tang.

The EU, member states and other countries are doubling down on clean energy commitments, with hydrogen at their heart.
    S&P Global Commodity Insights’ James Burgess discusses recent developments with pricing specialist Jeff McDonald and analyst Matthew Hodgkinson.
