²  The integrated soda production lines (capacity: 900,000t/a) and glyphosate production lines stopped working, so did the methionine production facilities.

²  Sales of brine and natural gas of Sichuan Hebang Salt Co., Ltd. and Leshan Yongjiang Industry Co., Ltd. have been paused because of the suspension of the above-mentioned production lines.


The unflooded 300,000t/a integrated soda production lines of the company have been in normal operation.
