Ignition Battery Producers Show Divergent Operation Conditions, SMM Reports

SMM survey found this round of environmental checks made different impact on lead-acid battery producers. Some producers cut output by 10-40% to reduce polluted emission during the inspection period, while many small producers were called to shut down as emission failed meeting standard.

Moreover, insufficient raw material supply also restricted production at battery producers. Most small secondary lead smelters were under off-line due to environmental checks, tightening lead supply. Besides, plastic, paper and packing producers also halted operation, slashing supply of battery containers and paper packing.
