Coal processing plants in the province's Langkou Jinquan
Industrial Park have already stopped production and are
awaiting further notice from the government. Facilities
received a verbal notification to shut for a month on March 1
after local energy consumption had already exceeded statutory
limits, Fastmarkets understands.
