From what was once a niche application of nickel, the use of nickel sulphate in batteries has pushed it into the spotlight. Roskill’s forecasts suggest that demand for nickel in nickel sulphate may reach 800-1,000kt by 2030, representing just under half of today’s market. However, as 2018 production only amounted… Read more
