SHANGHAI, Jul. 3 (SMM) –Coal-fired captive power plants at aluminum smelters in China’s six major aluminum producing provinces will come under on-site scrutiny before the end of June.
Why is Henan, one of the country’s major aluminum producing provinces, not targeted?
All operating aluminum capacities in Henan are in compliance with national standards, so the province is not included in the list, Liu Libin, Vice General of Henan Nonferrous Metals Association, explained.
Henan used to be China’s top aluminum producing province, with output once exceeding 4 million tonnes. However, high-cost aluminum capacity in the province shut down after cancellation of preferential power tariffs, reducing aluminum output there to just 2.78 million tonnes in 2016. Aluminum output in Henan is expected to be within 3 million tonnes in 2017.
