China’s alumina output will rebound in October following maintenance-induced decline in September, Shanghai Metals Market foresees.

SHANGHAI, Oct. 28 (SMM) – China’s alumina output will rebound in October following maintenance-induced decline in September, Shanghai Metals Market foresees.

Completion of facility overhaul and production incentive from rising alumina prices will be two major drivers of production recovery, SMM understands.

For example, Shanxi Huaxing Aluminum Co.’s 1 million-tpy alumina project will hit full capacity in October. Inner Monglolia Mengxi High-Tech Group started trials on its 200,000-tpy alumina project using coal ash as raw material in late September, SMM has learned.

China’s alumina output dropped 243,000 tonnes month-on-month to 4.08 million tonnes in September, due mainly to widespread maintenance, as detailed below:
