Tang Chunlong: accelerate Suggestions “aluminum second pioneering” to improve the quality of Baise aluminum industry

This year is the implementation of nineteen spirit of the party’s first year is the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up is the key to winning a year building a moderately prosperous society, the implementation of “Thirteen Five Year Plan” nexus. We ESCH Sports Commission to Strengthen “Four Consciousness”, and consciously to maintain a high degree consistent with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core of the CPC Central Committee, conscientiously study and implement the new era of socialist thought Xi Jinping and nineteenth Congress of the CPC with Chinese characteristics and the party’s political construction in the first place, adhere to a correct political stance, political orientation, political principles, political path. Adhere to the two major themes of unity and democracy, Daxing investigation and study, and improve decision-making more scientific and effective execution in order to forge ahead, making mental state promoting the work of the CPPCC putting down roots. Here, Chuqian to talk about how high-quality Bose promote Suggestions “aluminum second pioneering”:

First, the basic situation of Baise aluminum industry

First, the aluminum industry beginning to take shape. At present, it has an annual mining bauxite 17.5 million tons, annual output of 8.4 million tons of alumina, electrolytic aluminum and 1.02 million tons, 3.14 million tons of aluminum production capacity. Important instructions aluminum and related industrial output value reached 116.2 billion yuan, RMB 100 mark for the first time, becoming the first pillar industry in Baise industrial economy, this is Comrade Deng Xiaoping made “Guangxi Pingguo Aluminum wants!” 30 years, Baise industrial history once again a great leap forward.

Second ecological aluminum industry demonstration base shape. Currently, Pingguo, Debao, Jingxi three aluminum aluminum industrial base in separate categories to Tiandong supporting base, industrial parks and new Shanlv Baise industry demonstration park as a carrier of aluminum production and research base for fast, Guangxi, Guizhou (Tianlin Longlin) economic cooperation Zone, Baise – Wenshan inter-provincial cooperation zone to catch up, seven aluminum coal integration project completed basic layout.

Three further chain extension of aluminum. Dressing has formed alumina, alumina, chemically non-metallurgical aluminum, aluminum, aluminum regeneration, construction profiles, aluminum foil, electrical wire and embrace some industrial profiles, and other aluminum industry. Gradually aluminum foil to the aluminum plate by the construction profiles, higher value-added aluminum deep processing direction aluminum-magnesium alloy, aluminum automotive wheels, an aluminum cylinder head of the engine development the like.

Fourth, enterprises continue to grow and develop. The formation of aluminum Guangxi Branch, Guangxi Huayin Aluminum Co., Ltd. Guangxi Xinfa Aluminum & Power, Baise Yinhai Aluminum Co., Ltd., 100 Baise Mining Group and other leading enterprises. The number of the city’s aluminum enterprises reached more than 40, of which the industrial output value of over 10 billion enterprise 10, over 50 billion 3.

Second, there is the issue of Baise aluminum industry

But generally speaking, irrational structure Baise aluminum industry is quite prominent, mainly in the following areas:

Less than (a) areas own installed power grid, self-protection capability is weak. Currently, only 1.125 million kilowatts of installed capacity of the regional power grid, the main emphasis on self-occupied, regional power grid security and “black start” power is not implemented, the security of supply situation is grim.

(Ii) alumina in situ conversion rate. Huayin Aluminum, Kam Shing Chemical is not supporting the construction of electrolytic aluminum projects, Jingxi letter peaceful fruit although aluminum electrolytic aluminum projects, did not reach the regional alumina in situ conversion rate of 80% of the objectives and requirements, about 7 million per year of alumina Sinotrans, a hundred and mining Group did not protect the aluminum electrolytic aluminum projects.

(C) the coal supply and demand contradiction. With the integrated aluminum coal have been completed a number of projects in operation, coal consumption will continue to increase, after the completion of all the projects, the annual consumption of about 1,500 tons, and other industries of coal, annual demand of about 18 million tons of coal . The city’s self-sufficiency capacity of about 5.28 million tons, 12.7 million tons of gap.

(Iv) aluminum industry chain is short, high value-added products accounted for a smaller proportion. Aluminum lack of diversification, not formed for the technology, equipment manufacturing and household goods high, medium and low-end aluminum industry.

(E) dispersing the aluminum enterprise layout is not easy to make full use of the resources. As the city in Pingguo, Tiandong, Debao, Jingxi, Youjiang District, Tianyang, Longlin, Tianlin, Napo and other counties are involved in the layout have aluminum enterprises, land, environmental protection, transportation, utilities and other numerous difficulties, not ease of centralized management, not conducive to the bauxite resource allocation.Form each play each sing a different tune each situation, a competitive advantage is not obvious, waste a lot of manpower and resources.

Third, some suggestions to improve the quality of Baise aluminum industry

(A) increase scientific and technological innovation and investment, and implement powerful combination, creating high aluminum deep processing industry chain

The introduction of one to two by strong investment, there is a market of aluminum products business, and domestic and international first-class R & D capabilities of research institutes to achieve market demand and technology research and development combined with the capture of a gallium-containing over-Baise bauxite high problem, bigger, stronger high-Baise aluminum deep processing industry. One hundred Mine Group in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s research, and the introduction of a high-strength aluminum deep processing enterprises (such as public and Xinjiang Co., Ltd., Guangzhou Xi Nannan Aluminum Company), construction of high-purity aluminum, high-precision aluminum and aluminum downstream industry chain, to build high-tech, high value-added, competitive high-strength aluminum deep processing enterprise groups, Baise aluminum industry restructuring to enhance the development of the junior high intensive direction. Such as the development of South-South Aluminum aviation, aerospace, marine, rail transportation, 3C electronics, military and other new materials, production of refined aluminum products in about 50 million tons at present, South-fine aluminum production from aluminum used in all public and Xinjiang, Yunnan, Inner Mongolia and other places of purchase. Baise to change their concepts, seize the opportunity, take the initiative, using high-tech enterprises supporting the regional party committee and government’s preferential policies, the development of refined aluminum products and aluminum Guangxi local South-South, ZhengRun Group, has good market prospects, which the key is the key “aluminum industry second pioneering” Bose realized.

(Ii) deepen power system reform, citing Qian electricity into the hundreds, to provide power protection integrated aluminum coal

Accelerate the old revolutionary base areas around the river revitalization plan, speed up cooperation with Guizhou, Guizhou electric lead into the hundreds, to provide protection for the city’s coal-fired electricity aluminum integration. Southwest Guizhou Province to promote the regional power grid and the regional grid interconnection, for delivery of 7 billion in 2018, eventually transport about 150 million degrees. As Longlin 200,000 tons of electrolytic aluminum, 300,000 tons of electrolytic aluminum Tian Lin, de Paula 300,000 tons of electrolytic aluminum projects direct power supply to provide power for the city safe and stable regional power grid, to provide a reasonable price for the aluminum business. At the same time, accelerate the formation of Bose Power Group, the Bose Power Co., Ltd., the new aluminum Power Company Limited Baise integration, for the acquisition of Guangxi Water Resources Electric Co., Baise power grid to solve the industrial development of aluminum overlap, no electricity and so on, Baise expand regional power grid.

(Iii) the implementation of inter-regional strategic integration of coal resources, coal source to provide protection for the integrated aluminum coal

Good use of the national benchmark for small and medium sized coal mines – one hundred Mine Group uses the advanced experience of mechanized mining, hosting Youjiang Mining Bureau, the formation of Coal Mine Group, the transformation of existing mines through mechanization, and strive to achieve coal mining in the territory of Baise 8 million tons. One hundred Mining Group, use the “Bose Experience” brand go out and output technology and financial services, in cooperation with the hosting Southwest Guizhou Province, Guizhou Province coal 10 million tons / year of coal, mined for 2018 to achieve annual production capacity of about 18 million tons; to 2020 in a hundred coal mine group of 2500-3000 tons / year, to provide adequate protection for Baise aluminum coal coal integration project.

(D) to increase cross-border integration of resources, provide considerable protection for aluminum electrolytic Aluminum Integrated Sustainable Development

International efforts to accelerate the use of aluminum and Mineral resources, enhance industrial development potential Baise. Bose has proven reserves of bauxite resources have been allocated to basic aluminum Guangxi Branch, Huayin Aluminum, Xinfa Aluminum & Power, Jin Xin Chemical Alumina four production companies. After 20 years of mining, bauxite ownership Baise now only 439 million tons, the annual mined 18 million tons computing, but also for mining about 24 years. To promote the sustainable development of an integrated aluminum coal Baise City, we have to seize the strategic opportunities for development of national implementation “along the way”, the use of border advantages, strengthen cross-border integration of bauxite resources. At present, China Longbang – Vietnam Tea Park Ridge cross-border cooperation, according to “a zone between the two countries’ cooperation model, speeding up one hundred Mining Group jointly Wansheng Lung companies to cooperate with Vietnamese construction annual output of 300 tons of alumina project. Meanwhile, referring to international practice, to explore the establishment of price linkage mechanism of alumina and electrolytic aluminum, alumina promote in situ conversion rate of 80% to achieve the goal to protect the local electrolytic aluminum enterprises have ample supply of alumina, aluminum industry, Guangxi achieve business objectives secondary .

(E) aluminum industrial layout adjustment, take the Group of intensive modernization.

Baise aluminum industry bigger and stronger, a “second pioneering aluminum”, in accordance with the modern enterprise layout and management practices, and take the Group of intensive modern way, not the city’s most difficult everywhere. Shandong Nanshan Aluminum learning experience, choose one or two counties, contiguous centralized unified aluminum industrial layout, the integration of the city’s land use, environmental protection and other indicators, scientific research, production, logistics, maintenance, utilities, transportation is one of the modern base. In this way the formation of science and technology sharing, many of the benefits of integrated land use, easy management, greatly reduce business costs, improve competitiveness, reduce manpower and resources. Formation of the characteristics of the aluminum modern industrial park, the occupation of the aluminum industry a place to achieve a higher quality of economic and social benefits. (Author: Bose, deputy director of the CPPCC Committee of Education, Science)

Global Poly Aluminum Chloride Market Continues to Grow

PAC is a basic aluminum chloride, normally liquid and powder forms. PAC because of its odorless and harmless soluble in water Gaudet, applied in many fields, such as water treatment, paper industry, cosmetic additives and oil industry and other industries in the application. PAC also called polyaluminum chloride and polyaluminum chloride. When the liquid, which usually presents colorless or pale yellow. Solid / powder form, it is usually yellow or white. For fresh and clean drinking water and water treatment needs of growth makes the demand for wastewater treatment chemicals also will increase, driving the demand for PAC. Global PAC market is expected to grow 5.09 percent compound annual growth rate to $ 833 million in 2023.

PAC is widely used in the wastewater treatment, because it can produce less sludge flocculation more effective in the waste water, better alternative to alum, pH adjusted so that the water is minimized. In 2015, the water treatment applications in the Asia-Pacific region accounted for 49.2%. Followed by Europe. It is expected to be 5.09% compound growth.

In addition, PAC sizing process applied to the paper industry in which starch enhance performance. Which may further process the waste water is discharged. Demand in the paper industry is also growing.

Three Major Factors Affecting the Performance of CPE

First: Raw material type —– Chlorinated polyethylene obtained from high molecular weight polyethylene has higher viscosity and tensile strength, but low adhesion between this CPE and PVC resin, with the resultant low molecular weight polyethylene tensile strength and low viscosity of the CPE, the resultant high density polyethylene CPE becomes good heat performance.

Second: the size of the raw material particles —– too small size is easy to form the CPE gel or mass, the uneven distribution of the particle size is too large chlorine, insoluble in organic solvents, the best particle size in the range of 0.1-200μm .

Third: the CPE low degree of chlorination —– chlorine content of 25% or less, poor compatibility with PVC, can not be used as a modifier used; chlorine content is more than 40% good compatibility with PVC, can be used as the solid plasticizer used is not suitable for an impact modifier; a chlorine content of 36-38% of the CPE has good flexibility and compatibility with PVC, PVC is widely used as impact modifiers.

Chlorine is now used most 35% of the CPE, the CPE chlorine content of about 35% of its crystallinity and glass transition temperature are low, have good rubber elasticity, and have a suitable and compatible PVC, as is widely rigid impact modifier for PVC products.

How PAC Mediate the PH Value of Water

Do you have any idea how Poly aluminum chloride PAC mediate the PH value of water? PH value is an important value at the field of water treatment. The adjusting for treatment of various types of waste water, the pH is an important factor. At present, the industrial waste water is divided into acid and alkali treatment, we referred to as acid-base wastewater. Because of the nature of wastewater comprising such acids and bases, it is strongly corrosive, and Process for interfering with, can affect water treatment effect, whereby, in recent years people often Physicochemical first treated water quality adjusting pH, mainly the use of chemical additives dosing process. Materialized PAC Wastewater Treatment effects pH: pH adaptation PAC since a very wide range, so in recent years is often used as industrial wastewater treatment pH adjusting additives. PAC is mainly in use, will not be affected by water pH, has a strong adsorption capacity and dewatering performance, and for the water pollutant removal rate is high, the majority of users of the popular acclaim. Materialized PAC Treatment of acid-base wastewater advantage: For the treatment of acid waste water needs, according to the acidity of the measure with the dosage of PAC, and alkaline wastewater treatment is relatively easier to handle, because in alkaline under the condition that the PAC can fully play its role, so that pollutants in water have been aggregated and settled quickly, without the need to add further auxiliaries, and the need to add a neutralizing agent to strengthen the acid waste water treatment. Currently, the relative physico-chemical effect of treating PAC other treatment methods are more advantageous, and very obvious treatment effect, coupled with the maturity acid wastewater treatment technologies, there are a variety of processing techniques, but now for the acid wastewater also realized the treatment and reuse.

coagulant, flocculant and coagulant aid

stage wastewater treatment method is divided into: physical, chemical, biological method and the biofilm. Chemical process wastewater effluent mainly to adding chemicals to separate contaminants from wastewater, or converted to harmless substances by chemical reactions. In pharmaceutical dosage often has such three agents will let you get out into a dead end, these three agents is flocculants , coagulants and coagulant.

Sewage Treatment

As a workplace, in the face of these three agents is often difficult to distinguish its different, to teach a lesson book to find the definition of these three agents, the result is even more confusing, the book is defined as;

Flocculant: usually used in aqueous solutions of solutes, colloidal particles or suspended matter produced floc precipitation are called flocculant.

Coagulant: coagulant means enables foreign particles suspended solids, colloids, and the like generated floc material.

Coagulant: When a coagulant alone can not achieve the desired effects, adding some auxiliary agents to improve the coagulation effect, such an agent is referred coagulant.

See the above explanation, so I deeply feel despair, can not help but say that Chinese culture is profound, what is the difference? However, although I am discouraged, but not to give up, this dead end should continue to drill, check books, check the website Wikipedia, the literature search, the article only to find each statement actually not the same, really dumbfounding, can only choose one popular to understand, to share with you together and explain my point of view similar.

In fact, if you want to understand the difference between these three, the need to see through the nature of the phenomenon, although these three agents on the very same concept, but there are some differences in principle. For example, in the water, the main reason why no precipitation of pollutants suspended two;

1. suspended particles in water in the particle size small to some extent, the energy of Brownian motion is sufficient to prevent the action of gravity, the particle settling occurs, this suspension may remain stable for a long time.

2. The surface of the particles suspended in water are often charged (usually negatively charged), the particles between the particles of the same charge repulsion easily combined becomes large, thereby increasing the stability of the suspension.

When sewage treatment, by adding coagulant positively charged, negatively charged, and can be the surface of the particles suspended in water, the particles “destabilization.” Thus, by collisions between the particles, surface adsorption, van der Waals attractive force, bonded to each other forming large flocks, to facilitate separation from the water, this process is generally referred to as agglomeration.

Adding flocculant to the water and the floc formed by coacervation by the action of adsorption, tape, bridge, etc., to form particles larger floc, this process is generally referred to as flocculation.

Sewage Treatment

As for coagulant, but also we have to mention the chemical treatment of sewage there is a process called coagulation, then the question is, what is called coagulation it? Coagulation actually embraces administered to the raw water from the water were mixed, and the reaction to form particles of a larger process of alum, i.e. coagulation coagulation + = flocculation.

Any coagulant may be understood to not be used alone as a coagulant in a particular treatment process, but with the use of coagulant may enhance or improve the coagulation and flocculation the chemicals may be referred to as a coagulant. Coagulant to improve coagulation or for adjusting the conditions for the coacervation agent added to improve the polymer material or floc structure.

They see here has been around confused, so to see how if feels coagulant is actually a coagulant it? And In principle, there is a feeling of similarities between coagulants and flocculants, we might as well from the point of view of these three types of agents coagulants, flocculants and coagulant to clarify the relationship between these three Look.

1. coagulant

Coagulant can be roughly divided into three categories, organic coagulants, inorganic coagulants and coagulant polymer. Inorganic coagulants are: aluminum sulfate, ferric chloride, ferrous sulfate, potassium aluminum sulfate (alum), ferric sulfate and sodium aluminate and the like. Polymer coagulants are: PAC, PFS and so on.

2. flocculant

Flocculant according to its chemical composition can generally be divided into two types of organic flocculants and inorganic flocculants, and wherein the inorganic coagulant include inorganic flocculant and an inorganic flocculant inorganic polymer batt. Inorganic flocculants are: aluminum sulfate, aluminum chloride, ferric sulfate, ferric chloride and the like. Inorganic polymer flocculant: polyaluminum chloride (PAC), polyaluminum sulfate (PAS), polymeric iron chloride (PFC) and ferric sulfate (PFS) and the like. Organic polymer flocculant: polyacrylamide. Microbial flocculants are: Rhodococcus and so on.

Sewage Treatment

FIG 2 is a polyaluminum chloride (PAC) use effect

3. coagulant

Coagulant into a pH adjusting agent, polyacrylamide floc, the oxidizing agent, a polymer compound. The pH adjustment agents are: CaO, Ca (OH) 2, Na2CO3, NaHCO3, CaCO3, CO2, H2SO4 and the like. Water glass floc conditioners, active silicic acid, fly ash, clay and the like. Oxidants: adding CL2, Ca (OH) 2, NaCLO, bleaching powder. Polymer compounds are: polyacrylamide.

By comparing these three kinds of coagulant agent, coagulant and flocculant can see the relationship between these three intersection like the mathematical relationship, the same place but each is independent of the individual, so although coagulation coagulation + = but flocculation coagulant flocculant ≠ + ≠ coagulant coagulant.

In fact, we found conclude, opinions about definitions coagulant, flocculant, coagulant, flocculant such as polyaluminium call can turn called coagulants, and is mainly used as polyacrylamide coagulants, but also it is used as a coagulant. So no need to like me into a dead end, dead seriously, can directly speak when dosing pharmaceutical chemical agents like the name of the country, a move to solve all the troubles.

Guangxi Baise to achieve “one hundred billion yuan aluminum industry” target

Source: Guangxi Daily

December 29, 2017, reporters from Baise City Economic Work Conference was informed that, with this year’s Pingguo Hualei annual output of 400,000 tons of electrolytic aluminum projects put into operation, a hundred de Paula Mining Group, Tian Lin, Longlin aluminum one of three coal accelerate projects, electrolytic aluminum output exceeded 100 million tons of aluminum processing output exceeded 300 million tons of aluminum and related industrial output value exceeded 100 billion yuan mark, to achieve “one hundred billion yuan aluminum industry” goal. According to Baise Aluminum Industry Development Office to provide data show that as of December 25, 2017, Baise aluminum and related industrial output value reached 100.5 billion yuan the year is expected to reach more than 1160 billion yuan.

Bose is a bauxite resource-rich region, bauxite prospective reserves of over 10 billion tons, accounting for more than one-third of total reserves. In recent years, the city proposed to create “one hundred billion yuan aluminum industry” target, 2017 promulgated the “decision to accelerate the secondary aluminum industry business,” bigger and excellent downstream in accordance with force, to create the idea of ​​the whole industry chain, to achieve aluminum industry upgrade and sustainable development. “Seize the aluminum industry policy and Guangxi ‘second venture aluminum’ major opportunity to seize the initiative in the development of Baise aluminum industry.” Baise municipal Party committee secretary Peng Xiaochun expressed.

Built 6 billion industry park. In recent years, in addition to the original Pingguo Aluminum, Aluminum Silver Sea, Huayin aluminum, aluminum and other major projects, the letter continued outside force, Guangxi, Guizhou (Tian Lin, longlin) Economic Cooperation Zone, Baise – Wenshan inter-provincial cooperation zone project catch up. Currently, the city’s industrial output value of 10 billion yuan mark to break the base has six, the overall form of mining 18 million tons of bauxite, alumina annual output of 8.4 million tons, 1.17 million tons of electrolytic aluminum, aluminum 2.6 million tons production capacity.

Aluminum build a complete industrial system. In addition to alumina bauxite Bose outer material, and gradually extends chloride, calcium aluminate, corundum, refractory products, the formation of non-metallurgical alumina chemicals special industries. At the same time, gradually aluminum foil, aluminum-magnesium alloy, aluminum automobile wheels such as aluminum deep processing direction from the building to the aluminum profile.

Crack the aluminum industry electricity bottleneck. After Baise regional power grid into operation, electricity price from 0.6 yuan / kwh dropped to 0.36 yuan / kilowatt-hour, cost per ton of aluminum is reduced by about 2,000 yuan. At present, the Baise area power grid power installed capacity of 1.27 million kilowatts, running line load remained stable at around 800,000 kilowatts, per hundred mine 300,000 tons of electrolytic aluminum, Hua Lei 100,000 tons of electrolytic aluminum production capacity of power supply.

Meanwhile, the city gradually establish a resource-efficient aluminum recycling eco-industry index system, comprehensive energy consumption of alumina, aluminum integrated power consumption, comprehensive utilization of ash, mine land reclamation rate, reached the world advanced level. (Xushun Dong)

Natural gas supply shortage of alumina per month in Shanxi, Henan Province a total reduction of about 130,000 tons

 2017/12/26 Source: Asian Metal

According to Asian Metal Statistics, December Henan, Shanxi alumina because of a shortage of natural gas production totaled 130,000 tons, of which about 30,000 tons of production in Henan, Shanxi production of about 100,000 tons, accounting for Henan, Shanxi alumina month total 5.6% yield, we can see due to the shortage of natural gas supply for subsequent alumina limited impact.

Since early this month to reduce the influence of “coal to gas” and gas imports, Henan, Shanxi areas have a wide range of gas supplies tight. Local governments were generally implement the “pressure uninsured people” preferred provider of livelihood, resulting in some natural gas fired alumina producer alumina production is affected. At present, most manufacturers to use aluminum coke oven gas or coke oven gas production of natural gas as a mixed gas source, so this round of natural gas supply shortages have limited impact on most of the alumina refinery.

Total Henan 1265 83 78 5
Total Shanxi 2215 162 152 10

According to statistics, in December in Henan alumina production is expected to 780,000 tons last month, is expected to cut 50,000 tons, a decline of 6%, of which about 20,000 tons due to the implementation of policies leading to the heating season to limit production, about 30,000 tons and therefore the wheel the impact of natural gas shortages.

Inadequate supply of natural gas lead to alumina production fell in the north China

This year, in line with relevant national environmental policies, a portion of alumina companies from coal to gas work. And continued tight supply of natural gas this winter, a greater impact on the use of natural gas calcined alumina business.

Affected by the shortage of gas supply, since last week, CPI Shanxi Aluminum aluminum output fell, when the monthly production is expected to result in reduction of 5-6 million tons, affecting production capacity million tons / year.

December 16, Sanmenxia Development and Reform Commission issued an emergency notice, said: In order to protect the livelihood of gas, will Yajian Sanmenxia City aluminum enterprises Gas Consumption 10 Articles. The move will result in the Cayman Aluminum or with righteousness Xiang Aluminum cut production again on the basis of peak shifting production cuts, Cayman Aluminum Jiangzai cut a 50-tons / year production line, Yi Xiang Aluminum production will also decline.

Since the middle of last month north of alumina into the heating season, peak load shifting production, domestic alumina supply and demand fundamentals began to shift from surplus to shortage slightly, this leads to a natural gas supply problems will increase alumina production or supply gap, the current weak aluminum prices play a supporting role.

Related topics – The following is my analysis of the impact of colored gateway to natural gas:

Henan Province Development and Reform Commission issued “2017 Henan peak winter natural gas supply security plan” in December 16, 2017. The document notes that Yajian Sanmenxia City, alumina producers and other gas consumption 10 Articles. Currently the northern region due to the natural gas supply issues, resulting in part of the plant affected by the calcination of alumina links, although less use of natural gas in northern enterprises accounted for, but this month’s alumina production will be reduced. According to my Nonferrous network statistics, the North affected enterprises to build a total capacity of 10.55 million tons, accounting for 13.96% of the total built production capacity; actual operating capacity of 9.25 million tons, accounting for 14.58% of the total operational capacity. November enterprises involved in the total production of 81 million tons, is expected in December north corporate alumina production was reduced by 10,700 tons / day.

Alumina current market prices continued to fall. The main reason is the price of aluminum electrolytic aluminum enterprises leading to a loss, lower prices began to purchase alumina. And the recent traders began to actively shipping, transaction prices continue to suppress the market. With the implementation of this policy, the natural gas supply problems will affect the northern part of the local production of alumina business, according to statistics, the current relative balance between supply and demand of alumina market, reducing market if the supply of alumina north, the market may tight supply situation occurs, it may inhibit short-term downward trend alumina support to produce alumina price outlook.

Plastic Additives

During production of plastic products, some plastic chemical additives are often added to enhance the promotion. The chlorinated polyethylene CPE is one of  additives always used in PVC materials processing.  In the production of PVC foam product, sometimes the decomposition temperature of the foaming agent is too high to be compatible with the melting temperature of resin or  gelation temperature of plasticizer. Thus, the addition of CPE also aids to serve for promoting foaming and reducing  the effect of the blowing agent decomposition temperature. Commonly used blowing agents such as azodicarbonamide, if the acid with lead, cadmium, zinc compound and dried, could promote decomposition of azodicarbonamide. The plastic products have characteristics of toughness, seismic, resilient, wear-resistant after using CPE in the PVC processing aid regulation. Plastics will accelerate ageing in the application outdoor and it will often become crispy and cracked.  Then we could add CPE to reduce the fast oxidation.
