China environment watchdog warns Chalco over pollution: Xinhua

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s top environment watchdog delivered verbal warnings to Chalco, the nation’s top aluminum producer, on Thursday for failing to deal with pollution appropriately, according to a report by China’s state news agency Xinhua.

The Ministry of Environmental Protection gave verbal warnings to senior officials with Luliang City in north China’s Shanxi province and Aluminum Corp of China Ltd (Chalco) as they failed to deal with pollution cases appropriately, it said.

Pulp leaked from a Chalco subsidiary and flowed into a tributary of the Yellow River on Nov. 2, the report said.

This is the second time Luliang has been warned over pollution in the past 18 months.
