SHANGHAI, May 16 (SMM) – Almost 70% of capacity across small secondary lead smelters in Guangdong were forced to suspend after Beijing-led environmental inspection teams visited the province this week, an SMM survey found on Thursday May 16. A falling market also accelerated their closure. 

Large smelters of secondary lead in Guangdong saw minimal impact. 

In Jiangxi provide, a couple of licensed secondary smelters were also ordered to close, for no longer than four days, SMM learned. 

China's Ministry of Ecology and Environment said on Thursday May 9 that it will send teams to 25 provinces and cities to step up local environmental supervision over water and waste.
