Rein in cement prices, urges industry body
    2017-12-08  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SOME domestic cement producers and suppliers were taking advantage of the government’s environmental crackdown to artificially ramp up prices, an industry body said Wednesday, urging local governments to investigate.

The Wuhan Concrete (Mortar) Association, which represents the central Chinese region’s concrete and mortar producers, said some construction projects have been suspended due to disorderly price spikes and artificial supply shortages of raw materials.

China’s environmental push and orders for cement producers to cut output have pushed up concrete prices and led to supply shortages since September, the association said in a report to local government bodies dated Dec. 4 and released its website Wednesday.

The move was believed to be aimed at forcing up prices to gain “excessive profits,” it said.

Some construction projects, including key government projects, have been suspended, it added, without giving details.

The government has vowed to crack down on pollution as part of its efforts to clear its skies, ordering cutbacks in industrial production including cement, steel and aluminum in the winter season. (SD-Agencies)
