The Federal Antimonopoly Service hosted a meeting on the graphitized electrode market competition.
According to the director of industrial control department Nelli Galimkhanova, the meeting was gathered following two claims from Rostov Electrometallurgical Works and Krasniy Octyabr.
The situation is difficult, as the market has been experiencing a sharp shortage because of decrease in capacity and environment requirements toughening in China.
There are also difficulties with shot coke, needed for the manufacture of graphitized electrodes. At present the coke is supplied only by two companies: from USA and Japan.
Energoprom Management, the largest manufacturer of electrodes in Russia, is fully loaded with long-term orders, producing some 50 thousand tons per year, and exporting 15%. At the same time two thirds of Russian market are imports. (Ukrainian metal)
