Figure 2.1. Development of global production and consumption of refined nickel (in Mt/year) in the period 1999-2003. Figures for 2003 projected. After SGU, 2002; 2003.

In Sweden, the use of primary nickel grew by about 6% during the year 2002 to almost 38 kt, while the consumption of stainless scrap increased by some 3% to over 580 kt. The total production of stainless steel in Sweden in the year 2002 amounted at almost 820 kt (SGU, 2003).
