July 2021 saw the launch of LME Lithium Hydroxide CIF (Fast Markets MB), the latest in our line of electric-vehicle (EV) and minor metals futures.
Like all our EV trading tools, the lithium hydroxide contract was designed in close consultation with the EV and battery material communities to meet their risk-management needs.
Our cash-settled EV contracts are underpinned by leading and carefully selected index providers, and are tradable out to 15 months on LMEselect or the inter-office market.
Lithium at the LME
We have worked closely with the lithium industry to develop a contract which will have the longevity to support the rapidly evolving battery materials sector.
LMEpassport, a key component of the LME’s drive for a more sustainable future, is a new system that does away with paper certificates of analysis and provides the market with a new voluntary register of a metal’s sustainability credentials.Find out more
