Botanickel by Aperam and Econick


It Starts with a Plant…

In order to survive in naturally metal-bearing soils, certain plants have developed, over the course of evolution, the incredible ability to hyperaccumulate metals by extracting them from the soil through their roots. Long considered anecdotal, the cultivation of these plants is now a credible and responsible alternative for producing nickel to supply the stainless steel industry.
Thus, driven by a strong raison d’être, Botanickel wishes to become the reference in the production of bio-sourced nickel through the development of a complete value chain, from the plants to the production of stainless steels, and carried out with complete respect for co-development, biodiversity and the climate.
