Drummond coal loading suspension

Drummond coal loading suspension

Report summary

On 8 January 2014, Drummond Coal, the second larger coal producer in Colombia, halted its coal loading operations.  The government suspended the company’s environmental licence and ordered it to shut down its port loading operation as Drummond had not complied with the new environmental regulation – effective 1 January.  The new law requires the use of enclosed belt conveyors with dust suppression systems to load the coal directly into the vessels and thereby avoiding coal dust emissions.
