Nyrstar's Port Pirie lead smelter in Australia is ramping up production after completion of a project to improve efficiency, the Netherlands-based company said on Wednesday. The Port Pirie smelter was shut in October for work to reduce emissions and improve operational performance. Nyrstar, majority owned by trading and logistics company Trafigura, declined to say how much lead Port Pirie produces.
Nyrstar has completed scheduled maintenance work at its Auby operation in Northern France, but the smelter will not resume zinc production due to challenging market conditions, the company said on its website. The Netherlands-based company said the decision was based on the latest power price outlook and inflation across a range of input costs impacting the business. High power prices have spurred suspensions and cutbacks by smelters throughout Europe.
Germany's Stolberg lead plant has not reopened because its sale to Trafigura has not been completed, the commodities group's Nyrstar metals business said on Friday. The plant, located in the west of Germany, was sold to Trafigura in July and was due to reopen after the sale was finalised. "We currently do not have an update on when we expect to receive the relevant regulatory approvals," Nyrstar told Reuters.
