Noril Sknickel Harja Baltaoi, the Finnish subsidiary of Russia’s Noril Sknickel, the world’s largest producer of palladium and premium nickel and a major producer of platinum and copper, has been adapted by the Responsible Minerals Initiative as a Cobalt Refiner. It was accepted.
The Responsible Minerals Assurance Process aims to create conditions that enable companies to perform due diligence on their cobalt supply chains in accordance with the OECD due diligence guidance.
In November 2020, the facility in Harjavalta, Finland was audited as part of the RMAP under the RMI Cobalt Refiner DueDiligence Standard. This step was designed to reinforce Nornickel’s commitment to a responsible cobalt supply. In March 2022, the facility was included in the list of RMI-compliant refineries.
The compliance of the Finnish plant with cobalt due diligence standards for cobalt producers fully addressed the significant observations made in the initial RMAP evaluation and did not identify responsible supplier violations in the reassessment. It shows that.
Cobalt is used in lithium-ion batteries needed to make electric vehicles, smartphones and computers. Norilsk Nickel Harjavalta Oy specializes in the production of cobalt sulfate and various forms of nickel.
