As of 30th October, Shanxi Jiaokou Xinfa alumina refinery was still under suspension. The company has decided to postpone its resumption plans further, citing a bleak market outlook.
Shanxi Jiaokou Alumina refinery was designed with 2.8 mtpy alumina capacity. Its continued suspension is likely to contract overall national alumina supply in the short-term, resulting in a tight supply/demand balance.
