SMM Sept. 14 News: last week, SMM on the "impact of special limits on atmospheric emissions on copper smelting" attracted the attention of the industry. On October 1, 2018, the special limits of atmospheric emissions will be implemented in 26 cities and Shanxi province. this paper hereby investigates the possible impact on the above-mentioned areas.
First of all, the copper smelters located in the above regional provinces include: Shandong Province: Dongying Fangyuan, Guorun Copper, Yanggu Xiangguang, Hengbang shares, Dahai Group, Xianghui Copper, Shan Jin Fangtai, Jinsheng Copper, Shanxi Province: northern Copper; Henan Province: Yuguang Gold lead, Zhongyuan Gold smelter, Jincheng Metallurgy; it can be seen that there are a large number of copper smelters covered this time, from our research on the relevant smelters, there are differences in feedback. Most of the Shandong refineries said that they would not be affected by this standard, except that the Xianghui copper industry had long been shut down for other factors, but recently due to the second phase of overhaul of a smelter, the spot in Shandong was tight. A refinery in Henan said that if the overall number of days of environmental protection in the future is not up to standard, production will be limited by 20 to 30 percent. Shanxi is the most serious, it is understood that the production capacity of 100000 tons of equipment will be forced to shut down.
In addition, we understand that although some provinces have not yet written to impose this limit, there are already signs of implementation in accordance with this standard. It is expected that the affected refineries will be mainly small and old, the impact on large refineries will be relatively limited, refineries will also actively upgrade environmental protection equipment to meet the standards.
