Earth-i’s SAVANT index increases coverage in Chinax

01 May 2020 – With recent additions to the SAVANT remote sensing data sources the Earth-i team has now added two more Chinese copper smelters, Chifeng and Qiqihar, to our global copper smelting index.

This increases the SAVANT China smelter coverage up to 82% of the Chinese market. Operational data is available since the smelters came online in 2019. The Earth-i technology team continues to work with our partner Marex Spectron on additional data sources to add more Copper smelter activity during 2020.

Earth-i monitors up to 90% of the smelting capacity for copper around the globe. Using daily updated sources, including extensive use of geospatial data collected from satellites, the index reports on the activities at the world’s smelting plants offering subscribers unprecedented levels of coverage, accuracy and reliability. This dataset allows users to make better informed and more timely trading decisions.
