Although casting is declining, the output of castings in China has not declined. This is because small foundries have been eliminated, and the foundries which can survive the pressure of environmental protection relatively smoothly this year are relatively large-scale enterprises with certain strength. After transformation, the enterprises have begun or realized automatic machinery production, equipped with large scale automatic sand processing line and automatic molding line, the output of enterprises has also been greatly improved.
How many foundries are there in China?
In 2016, the statistics of various relevant media statistics were more than 30,000. By the end of 2017, statistics from relevant industry sources have probably dropped to around 24,000. So this year, how many factories have been shut down by the foundry, we analyze this year’s environmental protection policies and situation.
From the environmental news published publicly in 2018, from this year on, environmental protection will be strict for three years. Moreover, in addition to Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and around related cities, the Yancha region has also expanded to the Yangtze River Delta region, Shaanxi, Shanxi and other places. Western cities such as Xi’an and strict investigation were listed for the first time in the key areas of air pollution control. Therefore, with the further advancement of air pollution control work, the foundry industry will face a greater test this year.
