China Stepped up measures to curb power use in many provinces
Since mid-September, due to the impact of power restrictions, many brown fused alumina manufacturers in Guizhou Province have suspended production, and the factories have basically zero inventory. Some companies currently only accept advance orders. This situation may not be alleviated in the short term.
On the evening of September 17, Shenhuo Group, an aluminium maker with operations in Yunnan Province, announced that due to the shortage of power supply, Yunnan Power Grid Co., Ltd. implemented orderly power supply to electrolytic aluminum enterprises in Yunnan Province.
On the evening of September 21, it was reported that Keqiao District, Shaoxing City issued a power rationing notice, “From now until October 1, Zhejiang Province will shut down all high-energy-consuming enterprises, including all printing and dyeing plants, chemical plants, and chemical fiber plants.
During the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, there are constant news about the implementation of dual control of energy consumption and production restrictions. As the end of the third quarter is approaching, many places have strictly controlled energy consumption, increased power restriction and limited production, and the dual control policy has become stricter, and many places are facing the upgrade of dual energy consumption control management.
