Uses of cobalt
Cobalt looks set to become one of the most essential commodities in delivering the electric vehicle revolution – thanks to rising demand for the metal in the batteries that power them.
It is also used as a superalloy in aircraft engines, and in cemented carbides, which are often used as hard cutting surfaces or drill bits.
Cobalt is mainly produced as a by-product at assets that produce copper or nickel.
