Chinese silicon hurts Canadian market: CITT


NEW YORK – The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) has decided there is a “reasonable indication” that allegedly dumped and subsidized silicon metal from China has injured or threatens to harm the Canadian silicon industry.

The CITT’s inquiry comes as a result of investigations launched by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The investigations will continue, and the agency will issue its own preliminary determinations on July 22, the tribunal said in a release June 21.

The CBSA and the CITT started an anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigation into imports of Chinese silicon following a complaint by Becancour, Quebec-based Quebec Silicon LP, which is majority-owned by Globe Specialty Metals Inc., New York (, April 23).
