SHANGHAI, May 8 (SMM) – China’s output of metallurgical-grade alumina grew 14.2% from a year ago to 4.64 million tonnes in April, SMM’s survey found.
The growth was contributed mainly by commissioning of new capacity and restart of idled capacity in Shandong and Chongqing, SMM learned.
However, the output fell from March's peak of 4.71 million tonnes, SMM data showed.
One alumina refinery in Shanxi temporarily shut down 1.8 million-tpy capacity after an accident. But this was partly offset by commissioning of 800,000-tpy alumina line in Guizhou.
