Russian Coal: demand for Khakass thermal coal is growing on the world market

The Russian Coal company reports an increase in demand for coal products from the Stepnoy coal mine (Khakassia) from world consumers.

In 2020, shipments of coal produced on the Stepnaya mine in Khakassia to the global market grew by 14% compared to 2019 and amounted to 1.9 million tons.

The most active interest in Khakass energy coal is shown by the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Here, consumers from China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan set the trend. Russian Coal reports an increase in demand for Stepnaya mine products in the APR countries in 2020.

“Demand for coal from the Stepnaya mine abroad is active both in the western and eastern directions. Mine products are delivered to 15 countries of the world, “said a representative of Russian Coal.

On the Stepnaya section, stone energy coal of the “D” brand is mined with a calorie content of over 5,500 kcal/kg. A distinctive feature of fuel is the low content of sulfur. Due to this, coal burns easily. Such fuel is also suitable for heating stoves of social facilities and for heating residential buildings of the private sector. 98.8% of coal produced is processed at an enrichment plant, due to which the calorie content and quality characteristics of products are increased. Annually, over 4 million tons of solid fuel are mined on the Stepnaya section. So, in 2020, more than 4.4 million tons of coal were mined.
