SHANGHAI, Sep 25  – All aluminium processing mills in Jiaozuo of Henan province have been closed as of September 24 and aluminium processors in Tianjin are imposed with a 50% output cut from September 25, as cities close to Beijing strengthened environmental curbs before the National Day on October 1. 

It's assessed that controls on aluminium processing in Jiaozuo of Henan are the strictest in the pre-holiday anti-smog campaign, and may impact local aluminium consumption by close to 10,000 mt. 

Alumina producers in Shanxi and Shandong provinces were also required to halve production on September 25, which is expected to reduce output by 140,000 mt in Shanxi and 320,000 mt in Shandong. 

Production of prebaked anode, raw material for aluminium smelting, in Shandong and Henan provinces is currently under a curtailment of 50%. 

Large producers of aluminium strip, plate in Shandong, and Gongyi, Zhengzhou of Henan, though unaffected by environmental cuts, faced shipment restrictions, and this may push up their inventories of finished products. 

We expect the round of cutbacks in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and surrounding cities to be lifted by October 3. 

Environmental factors are also likely to affect downstream restocking and slow the decrease in aluminium social inventories.

Grain boundaries in ceramics may not be as chemically stable as previously thought. So say researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US who have found that carbon atoms collect or segregate at the boundaries of silicon carbide – a technologically important ceramic – when the material is exposed to ionizing radiation. The result could help improve our understanding of ceramics in ge...

Waste heat is all around you. On a small scale, if your phone or laptop feels warm, that's because some of the energy powering the device is being transformed into unwanted heat.On a larger scale, electric grids, such as high power lines, lose over 5% of their energy in the process of transmission. In an electric power industry that generated more than US$400 billion in 2018, that's a tremendous a...
