According to a report from SMM, the ongoing environmental protection inspections in China are taking a severe toll on aluminum extrusion production in the country's major producing regions. SMM estimates approximately 110 small aluminum extruders in Shandong, Hebei and Foshan have shut down for corrections, affecting approximately 2 million metric tons of capacity.

One aluminum extrusion producer in Nanhai told SMM it is planning to relocate just to avoid strict environmental protection checks.
