SHANGHAI, Aug. 17 (SMM) – Environmental Protection Bureau of Hebei issued Control of Heavy Air Pollution and Plans for Output Cut for Heating Seasons in Winter Days on August 4.
The plan requires steel plants in Shijiazhuang, Tangshan and Handan to halve output of blast furnace based on actual power consumption.
Coking time at coking plants, which have no emission permit, should be extended to 36 hours in heating season in winter days, and those at coking plants, which are under restriction of national industrial policy, should be extended to 30 hours. Coking plants, failing meeting emission standard, should close down, and coking plants should cut 30% of output.
Aluminum smelters should cut output for more than 30% across the regions in Hebei (including Dingzhou and Xinji), in terms of electrolytic bath, and alumina plants should cut output by 30% in terms of production lines.
Carbon plants, failing meeting emission standard, should shut down, and those, which reach emission standard, should halve output in terms of production lines.
In power sector, Hebei will have inspections on coal-fired power plants (including captive power plants) by late October, calling under-standard generators to close down.
Cement and cast plants and brick-tile kilns should cut output in heating season in winter days, except those which help heating supply, municipal waste disposal and hazardous wastes disposal.
Drug substance producers, producing by VOCs emission, should halt operation.
It is learned that Hebei has released output cut plans in April, and added output restriction on aluminous smelters and carbon plants on August 6.
