SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Fangyuan Group shut its 300,000 tonne/year copper smelter acid plant in Shandong province on 22 October for annual maintenance, a company source said on Tuesday.

The turnaround is expected to last for around one month, the source added.

The shutdown of the copper smelter acid plant will have limited impact on the domestic sulphuric acid supply, because its production capacity is considered small in the domestic market, a trader said.
