The city of Tangshan in China’s Hebei Province, a major steelmaking hub in the country, is planning to continue restrictions on local steelmakers’ production during the October 10-31 period.

In particular, grade-A and grade-B steel mills will not implement production restrictions, while grade-C steel mills will be required to cut sintering, pelletizing and blast furnace capacities by 50 percent. 

Grade-B and grade-C coking plants will extend their carbonization period to at least 36 hours and wet coke quenching operations will also be limited.

Casting and independent rolling (including cold rolling) enterprises within the second ring road and located outside industrial parks will halt production in the given period, while such enterprises in other areas will be allowed to implement continuous production for a period of 11 days.
