The State Council solves the problem of over capacity caustic soda

wallpapers News 2020-11-26

On October 15, 2013, the State Council issued the guiding opinions on resolving the serious overcapacity contradiction, focusing on the five major industries with serious overcapacity, such as steel, cement, electrolytic aluminum, flat glass ships, resolutely curbed the blind expansion of production capacity, guided the orderly exit of production capacity, included the solution of overcapacity in the performance evaluation index system of local governments.

According to official data, at the end of 2012, China's steel, cement, electrolytic aluminum, flat glass, ship capacity utilization rates were only 72%, 73.

7%, 71.

9%, 73.

1% 75% respectively, significantly lower than the international normal level.

Nevertheless, there are still a number of projects under construction to be built.

To sum up, the two downstream of caustic soda, such as electrolytic aluminum flat glass, are listed in the list, the government has issued rigid indicators for them.

Electrolytic aluminum industry: it is necessary to eliminate the prebaked cells below 160000 amperes by the end of 2015.

For the capacity with AC power consumption of more than 13700 kwh per ton of aluminum liquid electrolysis the capacity that fails to meet the stard conditions after the end of 2015, the electricity price will rise by 10% on the basis of the stard price.

Flat glass industry: encourage the use of low radiation insulating glass, support the upgrading of existing production lines, increase the proportion of high-quality float glass, cultivate glass intensive processing base.

We will accelerate structural adjustment in key production areas environmentally sensitive areas such as Hebei, Guangdong, Jiangsu Shong.

According to the statistics of Liu ruimao of Guangdong Plastics Exchange, electrolytic aluminum flat glass accounted for about 20% - 30% of the downstream consumption of caustic soda in 2012.

With the state's strict control of overcapacity, the relevant industries have set matory indicators, which is bound to further weaken the downstream dem of caustic soda.

In the first eight months of this year, the cumulative output of caustic soda was 18.

637 million tons, an increase of 4.

5% compared with 17.

834 million tons in the same period of last year.

However, the downstream consumption did not follow up simultaneously.

Under the general environment of low internal external dem performance, it was difficult to release electrolytic aluminum, flat glass or other related downstream dem.

Therefore, the situation of excess capacity of caustic soda has not been solved.

Taking the elimination of backward production capacity as an example, the guiding opinions put forward that "on the basis of completing the target task of eliminating backward production capacity in key industries such as steel, electrolytic aluminum, cement flat glass in the" Twelfth Five Year Plan "one year ahead of schedule, local governments should be encouraged to raise the stards for eliminating backward production capacity, another 15 million iron making enterprises should be eliminated by the end of 2015 by improving the financial reward stard implementing the replacement scheme of equal or reduced amount We have 15 million tons of steel, 100 million tons of cement (clinker grinding capacity) 20 million weight boxes of flat glass.

" From this point of view, during the 12th Five Year Plan period, electrolytic aluminum flat glass are facing great pressure in the downstream of caustic soda, the overcapacity situation of caustic soda industry is difficult to be fundamentally relieved in the short term.
