Report summary

China's proposal to ban low-energy coal has negative implications for Indonesia's coal industry. In 2012, one-quarter of Indonesian coal production, of which 30% was exported to China, does not meet the minimum energy requirement in China's proposed regulation. Much of Indonesia's low-energy coal mine expansions and projects are being developed on the basis of growing Chinese demand so it is likely the proportion of low-energy sales to China would increase.
