Nickel is an indispensable material in metal industries. As the third biggest country possessing nickel laterite resource, Indonesia has strategically inherited 15% of nickel laterite in the world. Nickel Pig Iron (NPI) is one of nickel products involving massive high-grade ferronickel and nickel pig iron (NPI). This shift presents a set of opportunities and threats that will require mining companies, battery manufacturers, and car OEMs to reevaluate their strategies. The global nickel market has traditionally been driven by stainless
China is the largest producer NPI (Nickel Pig Iron) obtained from the processing of the low grade laterite (oxide ore) with pyrometallurgical process. Furthermore NPI is used as substitute FeNi (Ferro Nickel) to make stainless steel (SS). The low grade laterite are imported from Philippines and Indonesia because China does not have the natural resources of laterite. China mainly imported
2017/9/28China-backed Indonesian nickel pig iron smelter made its first shipment last month and expects production this year of about 100,000 tonnes, a company official said, despite an Indonesian policy shift on ore exports. Virtue Dragon, a unit of China's De
Nickel Asia Corp and Global Ferronickel Holdings Inc, the Southeast Asian  MANILA — Mining operations in the Philippines' southern province of Surigao del Norte, home to most of the country's nickel mines, will be suspended from April 1 as part of efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, two mining companies said on Tuesday.
Nickel sulfate can only be produced economically from class 1 nickel products, which are defined as products with a nickel content of 99% or more, with the cost of converting ferronickel and nickel pig iron to nickel sulfate not being economically viable.

The suspension of the Philippines' nickel mining and processing operations in Surigao del Norte province amid efforts to contain COVID-19 will lead to a reduction in China's nickel pig iron production, according to analysts. The Philippines' top nickel ore producers
112 NICKEL (Data in metric tons of nickel content unless otherwise noted) primarily in Asia, preferred lower cost nickel pig iron. Mine production in countries that supply direct shipping ore to nickel pig iron operations increased, while mine production supplying refineries tended to decrease.

Nickel pig iron, a low-grade ferronickel, was created in China as a cheaper alternative to high-grade nickel that is used for stainless steel production. The growth of the nickel pig iron (NPI) market in Indonesia has led to the rapid increase of nickel mining operations in the country, says international metals and minerals consultancy Roskill senior analyst Olivier Masson.
Furthermore, Nickel Mines has a 12-month call option to increase its ownership of the RKEF plant to by making an additional payment of $120m. The call option period will commence from the date of first nickel pig iron production from the RKEF plant.

High-iron limonite ore has a nickel content of less than 1.0% and an iron content of 48 to 50%. Low- grade limonite ore has a nickel content of 1.0 to 1.2% and an iron content of at least 30%. Our high-iron limonite ore were sold to Chinese customers who use
The smelting of nickel laterite ore is no different, as the smelting process is the dominant technique and is typically used to make nickel pig iron (NPI) for the Chinese stainless steel market. NPI is created by mixing, saprolite ores with coking coal and a mixture of fluxes.

2013/12/1Meanwhile, the production of nickel pig iron in China and India has been supplementing some of the refined nickel in stainless steel production, in the past 15 years (Widmer, 2009). Some of the methods stated above have processing cost advantages over others due to the credits generated from cobalt, copper and other metals.
However, nickel pig iron producers have finally run down their stockpiles. They are said to be operating at just 30 percent of their design capacity The price could bounce as much as another US$1,000 per tonne to as high as US$23,000 per tonne, traders said.
