Production cuts at aluminum smelters in Xinjiang and Shandong will have knock-on effects on downstream processors, SMM understands. 

SHANGHAI, Aug. 1 (SMM) – Production cuts at aluminum smelters in Xinjiang and Shandong will have knock-on effects on downstream processors, SMM understands.

The cuts will tighten aluminum liquid supply and thus allow smelters to ask nearby processing plants for higher aluminum liquid prices in H2 2017. 

Profit Expands Further at Aluminum Smelters in China, SMM Says

SMM learned one smelter in Shandong might hike aluminum liquid prices by around 100 yuan/tonne.
