    The RKEF process is widely used to produce ferronickel from saprolitic nickel ores. Limonites are mostly treat-ed hydrometallurgically. However, limonites can be smelted in mini blast furnaces, in which case most of the iron is reduced with the nickel to produce nickel pig iron. Difficulties when smelting high iron limonite in an electric furnace

    Nickel laterites accounted for 60–65% of nickel production in 2017. The Big Three Nickel laterite processing is dominated by three main processes: rotary kiln-electric furnace (RKEF), blast furnace production of nickel pig iron (NPI), both pyrometallurgical processes, and the hydrometallurgical high-pressure acid leach (HPAL) process
