Beijing has announced that they will launch an anti-dumping investigation into EU solar products, specifically imported European Union solar-grade polysilicon.
It is the latest example of a tit-for-tat solar war between leading countries in the world’s solar industry.
The EU has been considering imposition of duties on Chinese solar producers who are accused of dumping.
The Commerce Ministry, in two statements posted to its website, said it would “merge” the EU investigations into ongoing probes of U.S. and South Korean-made solar products “to evaluate the accumulated impact of products from the three regions”, according to Reuters.
The Commerce Ministry said the probe was in response to complaints made by several Chinese companies, including Jiangxi LDK PV Silicon Technology Co., a subsidiary of LDK Solar., one of China’s hardest hit solar manufacturers.
