By Eileen Soreng and Praveen Menon (Reuters) - Russia might look to its giant neighbour to replace Australian alumina supplies cut off by sanctions, but Chinese aluminium smelters need all the feedstock they can get and may be worried about secondary sanctions from the West, industry analysts say. Australia on Sunday imposed an immediate ban on exports to Russia of alumina and aluminium ores, including bauxite, in response to Moscow's invasion of Ukraine. The move squeezes Russian aluminium giant Rusal, the world's No.2 producer outside China. It gets about 19% of its alumina from Australia's Queensland Aluminium (QAL), in which it holds a 20% stake. Graphic: Australia's ban on alumina exports to Russia tightens the raw materials screw on Rusal: https://fingfx.thomsonreuters.com/gfx/ While there is no concrete evidence that Russia is seeking Chinese alumina supplies, analysts say close ties, proximity and the size of the Chinese market make it a logical option. China, the top global aluminium producer, is likely to step in and absorb Australian alumina exports that had previously headed to Russia and could then potentially on-sell supplies, said Wood Mackenzie senior manager Uday Patel. "Chinese firms could buy alumina from QAL and then sell back to Rusal," Patel told Reuters. "(China) could also sell some of its domestic production, but note that alumina demand in China is also increasing this year as Chinese smelters lift output after all the power constraint issues in 2021." QAL and Anglo-Australian mining giant Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO), which owns 80%, did not respond to requests for comment about what would happen to the alumina exports meant for Russia and if they were receiving requests from Chinese companies. Rusal could not be reached for comment but said previously it was evaluating the effects of the Australian move. ANZ analyst Soni Kumari agreed China's domestic demand would constrain what it can do for Russia. "Russia could turn to China, but the country does not have enough export surplus given their requirement to feed domestic smelters," she said. "Further, Chinese exporters would be cautious too due to fear of secondary sanctions." Washington has warned China against taking advantage of business opportunities created by sanctions and helping Moscow evade export controls or process its banned financial transactions. Kazakhstan could step up to help offset Russian shortages, Kumari said, while other suppliers could include Brazil, Jamaica and Guinea. 'PARIAH STATE' China has refused to condemn Russia's action in Ukraine or call it an invasion. Beijing has also opposed economic sanctions on Russia, which it says are unilateral and are not authorised by the U.N. Security Council. "Russia is its key ally but at the same time China doesn't want the stigma of being seen as a pariah state for helping Russia," said Patel. He said there was talk in the market of some tonnages of alumina booked to be shipped from China to Russia via eastern Russian ports. Reuters could not independently verify any additional alumina shipments or planned shipments to Russia from China. China exported 7,967 tonnes of alumina in the first two months of this year of which 698.6 tonnes went to Russia, according to Chinese customs data. Last year, its alumina exports were at 119,891 tonnes, with 1,822 tonnes going to Russia. The loss of Australian supplies is not the only issue for Rusal, which supplies about 6% of global aluminium. Among Rusal's other major alumina suppliers, the Nikolaev refinery in Ukraine with a capacity of 1.75 million tonnes a year, is out of commission because of the conflict. There are also supply chain issues at Rusal's 2 million tonnes a year Aughinish alumina refinery in Ireland, WoodMac said. European nations and the United States have imposed heavy sanctions on Russia since Moscow sent troops into Ukraine on Feb 24 in what it calls a "special military operation". The sanctions and ongoing conflict, along with supply constraints caused by the pandemic, have pressured commodities markets and triggered record price hikes. [MET/L] Aluminium is a key metal due to its use across sectors from auto, aerospace, packaging, machinery and construction sectors to production of military equipment and ammunition.

Music streaming providers are known for keeping details about their royalty models close to their chest. The only notable exception in recent months was tech giant Apple, which released a statement regarding its payout model back in June. According to this document, its average per-play rate is $0.01, which means that each stream is counted as one cent towards the payout for the publisher holding the rights to the material. Even though this is a comparatively low rate in the greater scheme of things, it still places Apple Music at the top of the payout ranking. As our chart based on data collected by Digital Music News, The Trichordist and Forbes shows, Apple's GAFAM competitor Amazon comes in second with roughly $0.005 per Stream, which equates to about 200 plays for earnings of $1 on the platform. The market leader Spotify ranks third with a per-play rate of roughly $0.0032 and an average of 312 plays needed to earn $1. While this rate can be seen only slightly below average in comparison, the Swedish music streaming service boasts almost triple the amount of paying subscribers as each of its direct competitors, calling into question the fairness of its business model. CEO Daniel Ek has routinely downplayed such criticism and cited artists' lack of engagement as a possible reason for low payouts. Instead of only releasing a new album every couple of years, Ek told music consultancy firm Music Ally in July of 2020 that "it is about putting the work in, about the storytelling around the album, and about keeping a continuous dialogue with your fans". This dialogue with fans of course is dependent on those fans wanting to support specific artists, a model that has been adopted by Chinese streaming service Tencent Music. While the streams themselves don't contribute much to the actual payout, the streaming platform has introduced micropayments such as tipping to further support artists. It not only makes most of its revenue via a commission on these one-off payments but also opens up another avenue for artists to earn money on streaming platforms. This model's not as easily adaptable as one might think though, with online tipping culture called "da shang" being commonplace in China, but relatively unusual in Western countries. While payout mechanics and models may still require improvement, music streaming has become the most important revenue source in the recorded music segment. In 2020, 62.1 percent of earnings came from streaming services, with physical records and downloads making up for 19.5 percent and 5.8 percent, respectively.
