Industry News 05:55:12PM Sep 05, 2019 Source:SMM

SHANGHAI, Sep 5 (SMM) – Lead smelters in Jiyuan city in Henan, China’s top lead producing province, have been required to cut pollutant emissions by 10%, based on their daily average in August, according to a government notice that a local smelter received on Wednesday September 4.

This is expected to have little impact on lead smelting across the region, but local smelters are still likely to face additional restrictions in the run-up to China’s 70th founding anniversary.
