Nickel in the form of FerronickelThe core product of Euronickel Industries is nickel in form of ferronickel. Ferronickel is an alloy with approximately 20% of nickel (Ni) and 80% of iron (Fe), produced by smelting and refining various nickel ores with nickel content in the range of 1% to 2.2% Ni and 15% to 40% Fe. Each produced tonne of nickel carries additional 4 tonnes of pure iron. Stainless steel producers harvest major advantages by feeding pure iron along with the nickel.
- In parallel with ferronickel production, Euronickel produces slag as a by-product, which comes in two subtypes:
- - Electro-furnace slag and
- - Converter slag
