DYM Resources starts lithium hydroxide supply

DYM Resources introduces a new product in our portfolio – lithium hydroxide (HS Code 38112900, CAS Number 1310-65-2, EC No 215-183-4). We just bought a first batch from Russia and plan regular deliveries to our clients in Africa, Asia, and Middle East.

Lithium hydroxide is used to make lithium greases. Lithium greases are resistant to water and can be used in high or low temperatures. It is used to transfer heat. It can be used in electrolytes. Technical grade hydroxide can be used to glaze ceramics and make glass and cement. 70% of lubricating greases in the world have lithium in them.

Production of lithium hydroxide is expected to grow in the next five years, as the demand for it will rise dramatically in response to changes in electric vehicle (EV) battery materials. Russia is increasing lithium hydroxide production due to access to low-cost energy, labor and existing experience.

DYM Resources offers delivery of lithium hydroxide is in 25 kg bags, but we can also provide bags of the “big-bag” type (500 kg and 1000 kg). Lithium hydroxide package complies with international standards and allows to transport product over long distances without changing the physical and chemical properties of the product.

Russia’s bitumen export duty drops for May 2020 shipments

The oil export duty of Russia will fall by $45.2 to $6.8 per ton from May 1, according to the website of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. The ministry reports that from March 15 to April 14 the average price of Russia’s main export oil blends, Urals, was $19 per barrel, or $138.7 per ton.

Considering the current prices for Russian crude oil blend Urals, projected export duty in June will be 0 USD/mt for the first time since duties were introduced. Export duty of bitumen is equal to export duty of crude oil. This means that the bitumen export duty will be less than 7 USD/Mt for May 2020 shipments.

The current situation makes the export of Russian bitumen to the neighboring CIS countries cost-effective for European customers. Russian refineries can deliver additional volumes to the European market due to a temporary decline in domestic demand because of the restrictive measures introduced in Russia in early April.

DYM Resources offers both regular and polymer modified bitumen. All products are EN-certified.

DYM starts supplies of ethanol and benzalkonium chloride for sanitizers production

DYM Resources is reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, constantly trying to adapt to the new circumstances and the changing environment. This time we are introducing two new products: ethanol and BAC (benzalkonium chloride).

Since the demand for alcohol disinfectant is extremely high these days, people start turning to ethanol and non-alcoholic disinfectants that may as well be effectively used as sanitizers.

The use of ethanol in a production of disinfectants has been approved in many countries in an effort to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Many producers switched their production from fuel alcohol to neutral alcohol for disinfectants.

DYM Resources is exporting 98% ethanol from Korea and China.

The product is packed in iso-tanks 19 tons each.

DYM Resources starts supplies for isopropyl alcohol for disinfection

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis increased demand for the disinfectant products since regular disinfection helps to limit the virus spread. Realizing the importance of the topic, DYM Resources is getting into the act: we added a new product IPA (isopropyl alcohol) into our chemicals segment. This is an essential step in helping to meet the global demand for hand sanitizers and surface disinfectants.

IPA is an inexpensive solvent used as a common ingredient in chemicals such as antiseptics, disinfectants, and detergents. It can also be used in aftershave lotions, hand lotions, and other cosmetics.

“We expect long term demand for disinfection as the world will continue to fight the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic most likely till the end of this year. Based on previous virus outbreaks in Asia, the demand for sanitizing materials will remain strong during several months after the crisis is over”

Denis Varaksin, managing director of DYM Resources

INEOS, one of the world’s largest chemical producers, has planned to build two new factories in 10 days to produce more IPA. Currently the company has IPA production capacities of 155,000 tons/year at Moers and of 85,000 tons/year in Herne (both cities are in Germany), so they are planning to increase these numbers dramatically.

According to Technavio report Isopropyl Alcohol Market by Application and Geography – Forecast and Analysis 2020-2024, “The isopropyl alcohol market size has the potential to grow by 521.75 thousand tons during 2020-2024, and the market’s growth momentum will accelerate during the forecast period.”

Despite falling crude oil prices, value of isopropyl alcohol has increased almost three times compared to average prices of 2019. In times of shortage professional supply chain solutions are needed and DYM Resources expertise is here to help clients globally.

DYM Resources can supply cosmetic grade IPA in drums and iso-containers. Please find a Cerfiticate of Quality below.

DYM Resources comments on virus changing Group I and Group III flows

The leading media in the field of lubricants, oils, and waxes, Lubes ‘N’ Greases, has quoted DYM Resources’ managing director Denis Varaksin.

“China’s imports of many raw materials have dropped,” Denis Varaksin, director of base oils and waxes at German trading company DYM Resources GmbH, told Lube Report. “So, the import of base oils has decreased massively, and a big part of that import was Group III … from South Korea, Malaysia and the Middle East.”

“These flows are likely to be re-directed to other markets such as Europe, [the U.S.] and India, driving premiums for Group III down,” Varaksin said.

“The reason is the same – the virus – but the impact is different,” Varaksin said. “Because of the Chinese import drop, the Group III market globally is long, and because of the Iranian export decrease, the Group I market is short in the Middle East, India, Africa and Southeast Asia.”

The company is offering a wide range of base oils, including Group I, II and III as well as finished lubricants and additives.

DYM Resources is quoted by a leading Russian business media RBC

Most visited Russian business news agency RBC (RosBusinessConsulting) has quoted DYM Resources’ Managing Director Denis Varaksin. This shows in-depth knowledge of commodities market by our team.

The issue in hand is a situation with a Ukrainian trader Cantarell Trading that took responsibility for illegal supplies of diesel to Ukraine from the Orsk oil refinery, which belongs to Mikhail Gutseriyev’s ForteInvest.

In 2017, Cantarell Trading signed a contract with ForteInvest for the supply of diesel fuel to the Republic of Turkey. During the process of diesel fuel transportation Cantarell Trading decided to redirect the vessel to Ukraine, which became the reason for initiation of criminal case on smuggling by law enforcement agencies of the Russian Federation.

According to Interfax-Ukraine News Agency, The Federal Service for Technical and Export Control introduced a special authorization-based procedure for importing oil products to Ukraine back in 2015.

“Everyone on the Black Sea market knows about the procedure and everyone follows these requirements,”

Denis Varaksin, Managing Director of the trading company DYM Resources GmbH.

More details on this topic is available in Russian on RBC news website.
