SUGAR LAND--December 5, 2017--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Volatile commodity markets and a possible slowdown in China have forced Rio Tinto plc (NYSE:RIO) (London, England) to lower its 2017 capital-spending forecast to less than $4.5 billion, compared with its earlier guidance of $5 billion, as it focuses on cutting costs at its iron ore, copper and other businesses.

Industrial Info is tracking $20.8 billion in active projects involving Rio Tinto, including about $7.2 billion under construction.
