SMM, June 4 / PRNewswire-Asianet /-
According to SMM data, in May (31 days), China's alumina (metallurgical grade) output was 5.926 million tons, down 2.13 percent from the same period last year. The annual operating capacity was 69.7739 million tons, down 865800 tons from the previous month, and 1.5205 million tons from the same period last year. The average daily output was 191000 tons, down 3000 tons from April, and China's alumina production from January to May 2019 was 29.519 million tons, an increase of 4.03 percent over the same period last year. The average daily output and operating capacity continued to decline in May. In May, the overhaul of Huayin in Guangxi affected part of the output. Lingshi hopes that the technical transformation will stop production one line, and Xinfa in Guangxi will stop production in May. Jiaokou Xinfa and Xiaoyi Huaqing were ordered to stop production for rectification due to environmental protection problems, Xinghua science and technology operation capacity was reduced to 350000, production gradually resumed, Xingan Chemical suspended a roaster, and so on. However, at the same time, Guizhou Huafei, Lu Yu Bochuang, Bosai Shuijiang resumption projects continue to contribute to the new output, Shandong Weiqiao operating capacity in May compared with April slightly increased, Chinalco Huaxing operating capacity is also gradually rising.
In June (30 days), the delivery of messages basically no longer produces alumina, but it is expected that recovery projects such as Lu and Yu Bochuang and Bosai Shuijiang will continue to contribute to the new output, and at the same time, the overhaul of Huayin in Guangxi is over, and Xinghua Science and Technology will gradually return to full production. The operating capacity of Chinalco Huaxing, Chinalco Mining, Sanmenxia Hope and other alumina plants have all recovered. SMM expects alumina production to be 5.671 million tons in June, down 4.94 percent from the same period last year, and annualized operating capacity of 68.9972 million tons, down 3.5892 million tons from the same period last year. It was down 777000 tons from the previous month.
