Top smelting province to cut output
    2017-September-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CITIES in the eastern province of Anhui are issuing plans to curb production in the steelmaking, nonferrous smelting, cement and coal-fired power sectors over the coming winter in a drive to meet the air pollution target.

Anhui, a key nonferrous smelting province, took the initiative to curb output even though it has been excluded from the government’s winter smog “battleplan” applying to 28 cities in the smog-prone northern region.

The step comes after the province failed to meet its target of reducing hazardous air pollutants in the first seven months of this year.

The city of Tongling, home to one of the country’s largest copper smelters, Tongling Nonferrous Metals Group Holdings, has asked some major cement, smelting, steel pelletizing and chemical firms to cut capacity by 30 percent, according to a statement confirmed by sources with knowledge of the matter.

The output reduction will take effect from Oct. 1 until the end of this year.

The statement also identified seven companies in the coke, cement, nonferrous smelting and stone-mining sectors that must shut down during the winter, including projects at two subsidiaries of Tongling Nonferrous Metals.

“We have received notice from local authorities,” said a senior official at Tongling Nonferrous Metals who asked not to be identified.

Tongling Nonferrous Metals currently has 2.05 million tons of copper resources, 1.35 million tons of annual copper smelting capacity and 380,000 tons of comprehensive copper processing capacity.

The provincial government asked local authorities to draw up detailed programs to improve their air quality before the end of August.(SD-Agencies)
