The RMB2.2bn ($322.2M) facility, which started construction in 2007 as the second phase of the refinery, was completed at the end of last year but has since been left idled because of the market slump. It brings the company’s total capacity to 600kt/y.

The company sells its products locally in Henan Province and it has no inventory at the moment. Located in Sanmenxia, Henan, Yixiang Al is owned by Henan Yima Coal Group Co.
