Due to your consistent support and trust, Asian Metal will hold the "6th International Refractory Materials Summit" in Beijing during 19-20 April, 2018. On the forum, all refractory material producers, traders, consumers and related participants from all over the world will get together, exploring the direction of the development and find a breakthrough for the refractory material industry! The organizer of the Summit sincerely invites all of you to attend this grand event.
In 2017, China paid more and more attention to energy saving, emission reduction and environmental protection due to increasing fuel prices and labor costs, shortage of ores, etc., have jointly resulted in surging prices for magnesia, alumina, silicon carbide, graphite and other refractory raw materials. The relation between supply and demand has changed in the refractory market; the phenomenon of overstocked refractory raw materials has completely disappeared this year; the refractory raw materials market is booming; prices for part of refractory raw materials have reached the historical peak in the year.
In 2016, the Chinese refractory raw materials market was deadlocked with overstocks. In 2017, the market prices surged based on tight supply and resource shortage amid the severe production suspension and reduction. Will the environmental inspection be upgraded with new environmental protection tax to be officially implemented in 2018? Will the Chinese refractory raw materials market further yield positive results?

  • Proposals for magnesite refractory production improvement in China
    China is by far the first magnesite player: first market, first producer and first exporter.
    Magnesite market, in terms of qualities and prices, is driven by Chinese policies. However, in the last 14 months many changes have occurred. These changes were necessary and could create new sustainable and profitable industries for both China and the rest of the world.
    This paper will make a diagnostic from mine to end products and propose easy solutions for updating magnesite production in a sustainable and profitable way. Refractory producers will beneficiate from a better quality, more security in supply and better prices for every refractory application.
    Mining Engineer graduating from the Polytechnic School of Mines in Madrid I also have a Business Adminitration degree from HEC, Paris.
    I started my professional career as Process Researcher in Florange Steel Works (Arcelor) in 2000. After Magnesitas Navarras’ acquisition by Timab Roullier Group and Grecian Magnesite, I started in the magnesite business as Sales and Marketing Manager, becoming General Manager and CEO of Magnesitas Navarras in 2006. In 2014 I became Refractories Development Director and member of Roullier Group Magnesite Business’ Board. I have also participated as an expert in the Euromines Committee.
    Since June 2016, I have created my own consulting company Badave de Inversiones S.L under the registered mark GANMAG, to offer advanced solutions for magnesite industry. My current customers are magnesite mining and industrial processing companies in Middle East and Europe. I expect to develop Ganmag activity in China.
