China's proposed low energy coal ban


China's proposed low energy coal ban

Report summary

China's National Energy Administration is considering a ban on the production and trading of low energy coal. Specifically, thermal coal with an ash content above 25% air dry basis (adb) and sulphur greater than 1% adb will be included in the ban. Importantly, imported coal will be required to have a minimum energy content of 4,544 kcal/kg (NAR) in contrast to domestic coals with an energy content as low as 2,870 kcal/kg (NAR). We see limited impact from the ban on China's domestic...
