Life cycle assessment of ferronickel production in Greece

The present study adopted a life cycle assessment (LCA) approach to assess energy consumption and greenhouse gas footprints of the main processing stages of a typical Greek nickel laterite ore for the production of ferronickel. In this context, a detailed life cycle directory was created based on facility-specific data and used for a holistic

Life cycle assessment of nickel products

In 1999, the Nickel Institute undertook its first life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) of the production of nickel products (Nickel Institute and Ecobalance Inc 2003). In 2012, following changes in manufacturing technology, improved efficiencies and rationalisation and increased availability of data from nickel-

Nickel life cycle management Nickel Institute

Use of high quality data: life cycle assessment can only deliver valid conclusions when built on appropriate data such as life cycle data for raw material production, material flows and recycling efficiencies. The Nickel Institute provides high-quality, peer-reviewed information for various segments of the life cycle.

LCA Evaluation for Different Treatment Processes of Nickel

In this article, life cycle assessment method is used to evaluate the three kinds of nickel production processes, energy consumption and waste emissions in these processes were analyzed by using GaBi6 software. The results show that ammonia leaching method is the optimal process based on life cycle assessment.

The life of Ni Nickel Institute

The world’s nickel resources are currently estimated at almost 300 million tons. Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Russia and Canada account for more than 50% of the global nickel resources. Economic concentrations of nickel occur in sulphide and in laterite-type ore deposits. Despite the fact that nickel mining has significantly increased over
