The city finalised the degree of output cuts across the coke, steel and foundry sectors for the 2018/2019 winter

SHANGHAI, Sep 18 (SMM) – Jincheng city in the south-east of Shanxi province finalised the degree of output cuts across the coke, steel and foundry sectors for the 2018/2019 winter, according to a document from the city government.

Steel mills across the city will be required to cut capacity by half from November 1, 2018 to March 15, 2019. Mills with pollutant emissions below the ultra-low standards will be excluded from the output cuts, except when an orange-level alert is issued for pollution. 

The document also requires coke plants to cut production by 30% from October 1, 2018 to March 15, 2019. This excludes plants that can meet pollutant emission standards and upgrade emission systems before October 1.
