SHANGHAI, Mar 22 (SMM) – As the heating season ended on March 15, manufacturers in Tangshan received notices late on Wednesday March 21 that allowed them to resume production after an assessment and approval by local authorities, SMM learned.
Steel plants that met environmental protection standards were allowed to resume operation while plants that failed to meet standards continued to face production restrictions. Plants that made fewer cutbacks during the heating season also had their production restrictions extended.
Coking plants that met emission standards will be allowed to resume production on April 1, according to the Implementation Plan for Key Industries' Staggered Production in Non-heating Season. Cutbacks will be enforced for those that failed to meet emission standards.
Transportation restrictions at ports will also be eased for key sectors such as steel, coking, and energy.
