On February 15, 2017, the Minister of Environmental Protection Chen Jining personally led the team to conduct special inspections on air quality in the first quarter, and the environmental storm quickly swept across the country. The first to bear the brunt is the non-metallic mining industry.
1. There is a “shutdown and rectification tide” in various places.
Mine enterprises all over the country are generally hard and late to return to work , once again set off the "shutdown and rectification tide"!
According to a quartz sand processing enterprise in Lingshou, Hebei, the local mining and processing enterprises are basically shut down, and will not be started until March 15.
2. Increased restrictions on mining rights
On January 3, 2017, the Ministry of Land and Resources issued the “Notice on Doing a Good Job in Mine Geological Environmental Protection and Land Reclamation Program Compilation”, and mining enterprises that failed to fulfill their geological environmental governance and land reclamation obligations as required shall be ordered to make rectification. If the rectification is not in place, it may not be approved to apply for a new mining license nor to apply for a mining license, and may not be approved for the application of a new construction land.
On February 7, 2017, the Guangxi Provincial Department of Land and Resources issued the “Notice on Further Strengthening the Management of Non-metallic Mineral Resources in Open-pit Mining” to strengthen the management of open-pit mining of non-metallic mineral resources and requested strict implementation. In 2016, Guangxi has already managed some mines, such as: all quarries have been stopped in Beihai , and 37 people are held accountable for illegal construction of quarry in Lijiang Scenic Area.
Guangxi is abundant in non-metallic mineral resources such as marble, granite, limestone, bentonite, barite, kaolin, talc and refractory clay. After the implementation of this new regulation in 2017, another batch of mines will face shutdown or rectification.
3, The price rising
Under the new economic and environmental situation, the supply of mineral products decreased, the cost brought by environmental governance increased, and the freight raised. The mid-stream industry and the downstream raw material industry surged a wave of price increasing under such heavy pressure.
Many people ask, how long will this storm last?
"Two sessions" in March
“Belt and Road”Summit in May
The Summit of BRICS in September
After that, in the past few years, the customary fourth quarter smog conference
Will there come a day when environmental protection is not strict?
The era of making money with pollution is really over.
What should mines, powder processing and downstream application companies respond?
First, mines and powder companies should be soberly aware that China's environmental governance will not be just a storm. After 2017, cleaner production is the foundation of the existence of the company.
Second, enterprises should actively adopt advanced technology and equipment to carry out environmental protection transformation. Comprehensively control the tailings , waste water and waste gas discharged from the production line and mine, and carry out air cleaning reform (including dust and VOCs) in the production workshop, so as to ensure cleaning production indeed.
Finally, due to the historical reasons of the domestic non-metallic mineral industry, many enterprises have small production capacity, weak technical strength, shortage of funds, and low product quality. In the new stage of China's national economic development, only by consciously merger and reorganization, upgrading and reconstruction can companys survive and develop.
