SMM Survey: What’s Impact on China Base Metals Market from New Environmental Drive?

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.
