Demand for nickel and cobalt is expected to increase as production and adoption of electric vehicles (EV’s) and their lithium-ion battery packs continues to grow. The EV market utilizes three principal battery types: lithium-cobalt-oxide (LCO), nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) and nickel-cobalt-aluminium-oxide (NCA); which could utilize nickel and cobalt.
