According to foreign news on July 6, Malaysia has implemented the bauxite mining ban for a year and a half. The country's implementation of the mining ban is to promote miners to make their mining activities meet environmental standards. However, the country's bauxite exports to China, a major consumer, have increased again, triggering public anger over the illegal exploitation of electromechanical activities
residents and politicians in the bauxite mining area on the east coast have called for a comprehensive export ban on bauxite, but industry data and analysts say shipments may continue
Malaysia has suspended bauxite mining since January last year, but allowed exports to continue to consume the large amount of inventory backlog at the port. In the port, the outflow of bauxite after the seasonal rain polluted the water and caused public anger
although the bauxite mining ban has been implemented for 18 months, the current inventory is still the same as when the ban was implemented. According to China's import data, Malaysia has exported more than 9million tons of bauxite to China
fuziah Salleh, a member of Parliament in Kuantan, said: "for the past six months, we have received reports from residents about new mining activities... This is why inventories have been high."
Malaysia has briefly become the largest supplier of bauxite to China. At the end of 2015, bauxite shipments reached a peak of nearly 3.5 million tons/month. After the implementation of the ore export ban in neighboring Indonesia, miners have made up for the supply gap
however, most irregular miners failed to ensure the safety of bauxite stocks. After the seasonal rain, bauxite flowed into the waters and caused the offshore to turn red, polluting the water source and prompting Malaysia to implement a mining ban since January 1 last year
in December last year, Malaysia's bauxite export to China was 165587 tons, but then it climbed steadily, and the export volume climbed to 719614 tons in May
according to Ibrahim, a 50 year old resident in Kuantan, bauxite mining activities and the amount of bauxite delivered to the port by truck have increased since last October
he said by saying, "the transportation time of bauxite is irregular, from morning to night. No less than 200 trucks are transported from the mining area to the port every day. In this case, how can the inventory level drop?"
the application of industry data and waste materials in kindergarten education and teaching has not only cultivated children's awareness of protecting the environment since childhood, analysts said that the mining ban has not produced results, and it is expected that mining activities will continue as long as China has demandA manager of a bauxite mining company said, "China imports 10000 tons of bauxite every year to meet domestic demand. Mining profits still exist, so people will continue to carry out illegal mining."
last week, Malaysia announced to extend the mining ban of bauxite for another six months. Until the end of this year, this is the sixth time to extend the mining ban
Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar, Malaysian Minister of nature and environment, said in a statement that the ban aims to limit illegal mining activities carried out by hydraulic universal testing machines on private land and mining enterprises that ignore Malaysian mining regulations, so as to avoid continuous deterioration of environmental pollution. He said that the inventory level had not declined, and the government would consider more stringent law enforcement actions, including 24-hour surveillance, but he declined to comment on the call for a comprehensive export ban on bauxite
he said, "I am only concerned about the impact of mining activities on the environment. A fundamental suspension will have an impact on the country's economy. Suspension of bauxite mining means that it will endanger the country's economy and thousands of people involved in the industry."
