From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers.
Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the nickel alloy.
Nickel alloys are metals made by combining nickel as the main element with another material (usually titanium, copper, aluminum, iron, and chromium).
It combines two materials to provide more desirable functions, such as higher strength or corrosion resistance. Due to its unique performance, it is used in a variety of devices in multiple industries.
About 90% of all new nickel sold each year is used to make alloys. The most popular is stainless steel, which accounts for about two-thirds of newly produced nickel alloys.
Enhanced properties provided by the material:
Enhanced corrosion resistance
Strength increases at higher and lower temperatures
Many nickel-based alloys have excellent properties at temperatures above 1000°C, making them ideal for extremely harsh environments. They provide excellent oxidation resistance at high temperatures while maintaining high-quality weldability, machinability, and ductility.
How long is the life of nickel alloy?
Nickel alloys have an average life of 25 to 35 years. Depending on the application, the service life may be longer. So, the material is more cost-effective than other metals. Nickel alloys are recyclable and have one of the highest recovery rates in the world. About half of the nickel in stainless steel products comes from recycled nickel materials.
Nickel alloy applications:
This material is common in a variety of devices and objects that people use every day, including:
Food preparation equipment
Aircraft and power turbines
Nuclear power system
The energy, chemical, petrochemical, and power industries rely on nickel superalloys for their excellent oxidation resistance and high-temperature strength in critical applications. Alloys of nickel, chromium, and molybdenum offer enhanced corrosion resistance.
Superalloys are made by adding homogeneous elements (including chromium, aluminum, cobalt, and titanium) to produce optimal directional solidification or single crystal structure, thus giving the material strength beyond that of ordinary steel. These nickel-based alloys are used in extremely hot environments, such as gas turbines and aircraft for electricity generation.
Iron-bearing nickel alloys are popular in electronics and specialty engineering. Nickel alloys with copper are used in Marine engineering because of their corrosion resistance in seawater.
Wastewater treatment and piping systems have increased the use of this type of stainless steel because of its very low corrosion rate when treating water, even at high flow rates. It also offers incredible strength and ductility and is easy to manufacture, making it easier to use a cheaper method of joining when assembling pipes.

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to develop, there is growing concern about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the nickel alloy may keep rising.
