On March 9, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Development and Reform Commission, the Department of Industry and Information Technology, and the Energy Bureau jointly issued the "Notice on Several Guarantee Measures to Ensure the Completion of the Energy Consumption Dual Control Targets and Tasks in the Fourteenth Five-Year Plan". According to the "Guarantee Measures", through strict implementation of target responsibilities, strict energy conservation review constraints, full implementation of energy budget management, strengthening implementation of responsibilities, compacting the dual control responsibilities of energy consumption in the league, and implementing the main energy conservation responsibilities of key energy users, To ensure the realization of the "14th Five-Year Plan" energy consumption dual control goal.
Although the fermentation industry is not within the scope of the six high energy consumption industries announced by the National Development and Reform Commission in 2019, the biggest feature of the fermentation industry is that it must rely on the high consumption of water, electricity, coal and food consumption. Almost all amino acid fermentation companies have the scope of the six high energy consumption industries. Power plant inside. It is rumored that some amino acid companies in Inner Mongolia have received relevant documents and survey forms, and some companies have already determined production restrictions. Mobao.com expects that the information on production restrictions will be gradually disclosed in the next few weeks, and upstream factories will face the possibility of increased fixed costs and decreased supply after production restrictions, especially the 98% lysine and threonine that are in a tight balance in 2020. There is a supply risk for acid.
According to a previous China News Service report, the National Development and Reform Commission reported on February 3 that as the beginning of the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, it is necessary to study and improve the dual control system for energy consumption and further strengthen the responsibility evaluation and assessment of the dual control of energy consumption. The Department of Environment and Resources of the National Development and Reform Commission stated that resource conservation and environmental protection should be aligned with the tasks specified by the Central Plenary Session and the Central Economic Work Conference. Therefore, in terms of dual control measures, Inner Mongolia has just started, and relevant provinces and municipalities will follow up.

Therefore, overseas customers of Mobao.com also put forward certain requirements on transportation.
At present, 70% lysine mainstream traders in China are quoting 6.0-6.5 yuan/kg, and 98% lysine mainstream quotations are 11.8-12.8 yuan/kg. Affected by recent policy news, the fourteenth five-year energy consumption double control impact, there are factories There is a risk of limited operating rate or production line shutdown.
At the same time, due to the hindrance of the resumption of growth of live pig breeding and the decline in demand, the willingness of downstream customers to make transactions has declined, and the actual transactions in the previous period have been average. The overall market is holding a wait-and-see attitude. According to Mobao's survey, more than 75% of the feed factory inventory will be exhausted by the end of April at the latest. It is expected that the first wave of purchases in the Year of the Ox may occur between the end of March and the beginning of April.
Please pay attention to the 98% lysine hydrochloride plant operating rate and changes in downstream procurement requirements in the later period. Over the past year, 98% lysine has been in a tight balance. This trend will not change in 2021, and the limited production in the later period will further affect the tight supply.
