Pollution Curbs Decimate Production at China’s Biggest Aluminum Smelter
The world’s biggest aluminum smelting company has been told to shut down one-tenth of its production as northern China tries to keep pollution in check while also keeping warm as the winter bites.
Shandong Weiqiao Pioneering Group Co. Ltd., the parent of aluminum giant China Hongqiao Group Ltd., has been told shut down the cells used for smelting aluminum in what would amount to the equivalent of a 650,000-metric ton reduction in output. The order came from the Binzhou city government in eastern China’s Shandong province, where the company’s operation is based, according to a document released on Monday.
