Reuters reported that China’s top steelmaking city of Tangshan in Hebei province issued a second-level pollution alert on Friday in response to a wave of smog expected to blanket the region. Steel mills in the city were ordered to halt operations of sintering machines by at least 40% or even shut down, based on their emission levels. Meanwhile, all mills will have to halve their shaft furnace operations. The alert will take effect from April 20 to April 25.

Other industrial plants in coke, casting, cement, pharmaceutical and mining sectors were also asked to curtail output during the alerts. Diesel-fueled trucks will also be restricted from transporting commodity materials, it said.
