Green transport starts here.

We produce battery chemicals for the increasingly popular electric cars. Our battery chemicals have the lowest carbon footprint on the market. Our highly energy-efficient bioleaching method ensures a small carbon footprint. Our reliable deliveries are ensured by our nickel reserves, which are the largest in Europe, and our battery chemicals plant, which is one of the largest in the world. 

Competitive advantage for our customers

We process most of the nickel and cobalt we produce into battery chemicals. We supply zinc and copper to our customers in metal processing. We create added value, especially for our customers who are seeking a competitive advantage from the responsible operating models of a European producer.

Battery chemicals

We produce nickel and cobalt sulphates, which are used as battery chemicals, for the needs of around one million electric cars per year.

Sustainable supply chain

We require responsibility from ourselves and our partners throughout the chain, from the mine all the way to the customer. Our sustainability programme for 2020–2024 consists of themes that are important to our stakeholders and ourselves.
