What will be the price per tonne of lithium carbonate in China on 29 December 2023?
Closing Dec 29, 2023 08:01AM UTC
As demand for batteries soars while much of the world works to decarbonize, prices for lithium carbonate have risen more than tenfold from December 2021 to December 2023 (Yahoo Finance, NPR, US News & World Report). The question will be suspended on 28 December 2023 and the outcome determined using Chinese price data as reported by Trading Economics (Trading Economics, select "1Yr" on the lower left of the chart). On 20 December 2022, the price per tonne was CNY552,500.
