Nickel, which is a shiny silver metal with a very hard but fragile structure, has an important place in human life throughout history. The use of this precious metal, which constitutes about 0.008% of Earth's crust, dates back to 3500 BC. But because it is mixed with silver, healthy information about it goes back to the 1st century BC.
Nickel, is first defined by Baron Axel Fredrik Cronstedt in 1751 and has taken its place among other elements. The first nickel production in modern sense was realized in Norway in 1848. In 1889, nickel began to be used in the steel industry and became one of the most important metals industries with the introduction of stainless steel production for the nickel plating and casting industries. Because of its resistance to oxidation, the value added of nickel, which is now widely used in the production of alloys (especially superalloys), is increasing day by day.
In the future, vehicles, homes and cities will use renewable and clean energy sources. One of the most important issues is the storage of energy. Electric cars will continue to be one of the most important elements in the development of nickel and cobalt battery technology, which is more and more foreground. In this context, our contribution to one of the most important projects in Turkey, the "National Automobile Project", is raising our excitement to develop our business even more.
