DNi has developed a novel process for extracting nickel from nickel laterite deposits utilising nitric acid which is set to disrupt the nickel market. It will position DNi’s licensees as one of the lowest cost producers in the global nickel industry. The DNi Process™ offers unparalleled cost efficiency, capital savings and environmental benefits.
Nickel is a strategic metal and a vital alloy in quality stainless steel. As a result of the decline in production from sulphides and technical difficulties with completion and start-up of alternative nickel laterite processing plants, nickel is forecast to suffer a supply shortfall over the coming years.
