Handan orders 25-percent steel production cut
    2018-04-03  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE city of Handan has ordered steel mills to cut production by around 25 percent as part of new measures to curb pollution from April to mid-November.

The city in Hebei Province has also told its coking industry to reduce output by 25 percent over that period, while power and cement firms must cut production by around 20 percent, the statement on the Hebei government website said. Ceramics and glass sectors were ordered to cut production by about 15 percent.

Handan will also strengthen oversight of emissions from heavy-load vehicles, the statement added.

Handan has an annual steelmaking capacity of about 113 million tons, according to consultancy Wood Mackenzie. It was the only city in Hebei to see a rise in concentrations in 2017 of particulate matter 2.5 microns (PM2.5) in size.

The announcement of the new measures comes shortly after the end of northern China’s winter heating season March 15 and they are set to run until the start of the 2018/19 winter heating season Nov. 15.

China’s biggest steel producing city, Tangshan, also in Hebei, earlier this month decided to extend production restrictions on steel mills beyond the end of the heating season.(SD-Agencies)
