The Raw Materials of Silicon Metal

In the industrial silicon raw material market, the price of Taiwanese coke fell slightly this month, factories were not active in purchasing, and the price of Yangtze coke increased. The main areas of use are Sichuan and Chongqing. The increase in Ningxia silicon coal prices is mainly due to the upward trend in coking coal prices.
