SMM, June 4 / PRNewswire-Asianet /-
According to SMM data, in May (31 days), China's alumina (metallurgical grade) output was 5.971 million tons, down 1.39 percent from the same period last year. The annual operating capacity was 70.3037 million tons, down 336000 tons from the previous month, and 990600 tons from the same period last year. The average daily output was 193000 tons, down 1000 tons from April, and China's alumina production from January to May 2019 was 29.564 million tons, an increase of 4.19 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 and rectify due to environmental protection problems. Xinghua science and technology operation capacity dropped to 350000 and gradually resumed production. At the same time, Guizhou Huafei, Lu Yu Bochuang and Bosai Shuijiang resumption projects continued to contribute new output. Shandong Weiqiao operating capacity in May compared with April slightly lifted, 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 5.729 million tons in June, down 3.97 percent from the same period last year, and annualized operating capacity of 69.7028 million tons, down 2.8835 million tons from the same period last year. It was down 600900 tons from the previous month.
