In October 2018, the total output of sintered magnesia and fused magnesia increased by 14.84% year-on-year, the output of fused magnesia increased by 142.59%, and the sintered magnesia decreased by 78.38%.
In October, the output of sintered magnesia in China fell to 17,600 tons, a decrease of 76.15% from the previous month and a decrease of 78.38% from the same period last year. The output of sintered magnesia is greatly reduced and the discharge standard of magnesium refractory pollutants in Liaoning Province is about to be implemented. The Dashiqiao magnesia kiln is suspended and rectified. Together with the environmental protection “hurricane special action”, the sintered magnesia is severely stopped and the output is plummeted. . However, the output of fused magnesia increased sharply.
