SHANGHAI, Feb. 17 (SMM) - China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection announced it will execute air quality inspections during February 15-March 15 in 18 cities, SMM learns. These cities include Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei’s Shijiazhuang, Langfang, Baoding, Tangshan, Handan, Xingtai, Cangzhou, Hengshui, Shanxi’s Taiyuan and Linfen, Shandong’s Jinan and Dezhou and Henan’s Zhengzhou, Hebi, Jiaozuo and Anyang, which are major metal producing regions.
SMM undertook a survey to find that this round of environmental protection inspections barely affected copper processors in Hebei. Local plants have improved environmental protection facilities due to previous inspections. Tianjin was significantly affected. Most local scrap copper processors were shut down for inspections. Inspections at some producers will last for two months. Copper cathode producers were not affected yet, though.
