Focus on refractory production
It is forbidden to build or expand coal-fired projects in refractory materials and ceramics industries.
Recently, Henan Province issued the "Work Plan for Promoting Industrial Structure Adjustment and Winning Pollution Prevention and Control in Henan Province", which covers the refractory industry as follows:
By the end of 2020, the industrial added value energy consumption of enterprises above designated size in Henan Province will be reduced by more than 23% compared with 2015, the water consumption per unit of industrial added value will be reduced by more than 25% compared with 2015, and the total amount of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) will be reduced compared with 2015. With a decline of more than 10%, the concept of industrial green development has been widely implemented, the total amount of pollutants discharged has been greatly reduced, the clean production of key industries has been fully implemented, the greening and intelligent transformation of industrial enterprises have been greatly improved, and the industrial green manufacturing system has taken initial shape.
Support provincial and municipal governments and provinces directly under the county (city) to promote the integration of coke, foundry, carbon, refractory materials, ferroalloys, brown corundum and other industries, and accelerate the intensive development of centralized clusters.
In principle, the province prohibits the construction and expansion of traditional industrial projects with excess capacity, such as steel, electrolytic aluminum, cement, glass, traditional coal chemical (methanol, synthetic ammonia), coking, foundry, aluminum for carbon, and other refractory materials. New industries such as ceramics and expansion of coal-fueled projects and enterprises.
Implementation of high-emissions industries such as brown fused alumina, ceramics, refractory materials, brick kiln, casting, etc., and enterprises that cannot meet the relevant standards and have no hope of upgrading and upgrading, shall stop production and limit production according to laws and regulations, and shut down and exit.
