Rust Belt’s ‘Dirty’ Renewal Plans Quashed by Public Anger
Citing residents’ environmental concerns, authorities in Liaoning province, in China’s northeast, have called off projects involving aluminum oxide, including some that were part of major regional revitalization plans.
The canceled projects, located in the cities of Chaoyang, Fengcheng, Fuxin, Gaizhou, and Huludao, were originally expected to produce a total of over 18 million metric tons (19.8 U.S. tons) of aluminum oxide — widely known as alumina — a year, according to announcements made by the cities’ authorities over the past week.
