Managers of Canadian mining company Sherritt International today highlight the production of three billion pounds of finished nickel at its refinery in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.

Ottawa.- Thanks to a binational agreement the industry processes sulfides produced in Cuba through a Cuban-Canadian joint venture created in 1994 and in which Sherritt maintains a 50 percent stake in the association, to produce Class I nickel in briquettes and in powder.

Nickel class 1 is the purest form of nickel and is particularly suitable for applications, such as electric vehicle batteries, which require high levels of purity, according to press reports.
