Xinfa Group’s Shandong aluminium smelters exempt from Chinese winter restrictions

Xinfa Group’s two aluminium smelters in the Chinese province of Shandong have been exempted from this year’s winter production curtailments, according to a document seen by Fastmarkets MB.

The two smelters, which are both located in Liaochen city, will be allowed to operate unimpeded during China’s winter heating season which runs from November 15 until March 15 next year, a document released by the Liaocheng Economics and Information Technology Committee on November 14 showed.

This means the company’s 1.4 million tonne per year aluminium smelting capacity in Shandong will not be affected during China’s winter season, which is in contrast with the mandatory 30% production cut experienced last year.
