    At 11:00 am of December 28th, Zhao Hao and Iris visited Guizhou Huangping Fucheng Industrial Co., Ltd. and were warmly welcomed by Li Zhengyi, the deputy general manager of the company. They conducted in-depth communications on the current industry status and future development trend. Mr. Li noted that the supply-demand status of the market was greatly affected by environmental protection inspection and the supply of bauxite and graphite electrode. In addition, Mr. Li disclosed that bauxite, as raw material of resource products, will become a major factor that may influence production and price in the coming years. With four newly increased 12,500KVA smelting furnaces, the company is now upgrading its smelting technique and expects the capacity of brown fused alumina would expand to 200,000tpy in the second half of 2018. Finally, Mr. Li stated that he would take part in the 6th International Refractory Material & Abrasive Forum.
