Mexico lifts CVD on graphite electrode imports from China and UK

Mexico’s Ministry of Economy has announced that it has lifted the definitive countervailing duties (CVD) on the imports of graphite electrodes for electric arc furnaces (EAFs) from China and the UK. The duties were first imposed in September 2015.

CVD rates for Chinese producers/exporters were as follows:

  • M. Brashem Inc                               : 38%
  • Jilin Carbon                                      : 42%
  • Nantong Yangzi Carbon                 : 93%
  • Henan Sanli Carbon Products       : 185%
  • Sichuan Guanghan Shida Carbon : 250%
  • All others                                            : 250%

The UK-based exporter UKCG was also subject to a 250 percent CVD rate as it exported graphite electrodes originating from China.
