The government is currently studying the possibility of imposing progressive export tax on nickel metal products such as nickel pig iron and ferronickel in a bid to further push the development of the downstream industries in the country, the world’s largest nickel producer.
Minister of Investment Bahlil Lahadalia previously said that the government was considering banning the export of nickel metals with nickel content of less than 70 percent, namely NPI and ferronickel, to conserve the country’s nickel reserves and promote the expansion of domestic nickel industry into stainless steel, EV battery and other higher value-added industries.
The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources expects seven domestic smelter projects to start commercial operation this year, making the country to have 28 smelters this year.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) preliminary estimated that global mine nickel production reached 2,700 thousand tons in 2021 and was 8 percent higher than 2,510 thousand tons of nickel produced in 2020. With 1,000 thousand tons of mined metal, Indonesia was once again an undisputed leader in nickel production, followed by the Philippines (370 thousand tons) and Russia (250 thousand tons).
USGS said a report mine nickel production in Indonesia increased by an estimated 30 percent, which was facilitated by the ongoing commissioning of integrated nickel pig iron and stainless-steel projects.
According to the report, the country’s first hydrometallurgical plant began operation in May on Obi Island. It was among several similar projects in the country that were designed to produce intermediate nickel products to be used as feed material at battery-grade nickel sulfate plants.
This HPAL smelter will utilize a lot of lower grade nickel ore (limonite), which is very abundant in Indonesia. This is part of optimizing or increasing the added value of mineral resources owned by Indonesia.
The HPAL process can produce first-class nickel products, namely Mixed Hydroxide Precipitate (MHP) with its derivatives in the form of nickel sulfate (NiSO4) and cobalt sulfate (CoSO4) which can be used as raw materials for batteries. These products have a higher added value compared to the products produced from the RKEF line
