The Growth of Aluminum Products
The Growth of Aluminum Products Consumption pulls the Development of Industry
According to the data, because of the stable growth of aluminum products consumption at home and abroad, the electrolytic aluminum industry grew rapidly with a growing scale and level of industry. By the end of 2012, the capacity of electrolytic aluminum developed from 4330,000 tons in 2001 to 30040,000 tons with the operating capacity of 24950,000 tons and the output of 19880,000 tons. There are more and more technical breakthroughs in electrolytic aluminum. Some good-size prebaked anode electrolytic cells such as 200kA, 300kA, 400kA were built up and put into operation. The technology and equipment were in the international advanced level. In addition, the research and application of energy conservation and emission reduction in electrolytic aluminum industry, lead to the continued slowdown power consumption and the discharge of major pollutants.
By the end of 2012, the capacity of electrolytic aluminum in Yunnan Province was 1610,000 tons, which occupied 5.3% of the whole country. And it’s the top sever among all the provinces which were with electrolytic aluminum industry, among which the electrolytic aluminum of Yunnan Aluminum and Dongyuan Aluminum occupied 98.5% in Yunnan province. The operating capacity of electrolytic aluminum in Yunnan was reached 1070,000 tons, occupying 4.2% of which in the whole country. And it’s top eight among all the 21 provinces which were with capacity of electrolytic aluminum. And the output of electrolytic aluminum in Yunnan Province is 1003,000 tons, occupying 4.5% of the whole country in 1988. And it’s top nine among all the 21 provinces which were with output of electrolytic aluminum. And the rate of operating capacity was 93.4%, 21.5 percent points higher than the average level in the whole country.
Along with the construction of traffic, energy, water conservancy and communication, the accelerated development of industrialization, urbanization, new rural construction, the cooperation with the surrounding countries, the need of electrolytic aluminum products will be pulled and then incentive the development of relative industries. The minister from Raw Material Industry Minister said that, in 2017, the injection molding which its raw material is electrolytic aluminum will be widely used in the relative industry.
