Baseline

Coal is often associated with an obsolete economy trend focusing on heavy industry, outdated operations generating negative environmental burden. In fact, the demand for high-quality coal that can be used in steel plants and other industries is growing already nowadays thanks to a high demand for steel and other raw materials in the developing Asian economies. As oil and natural gas reserves are getting depleted and coal-based liquid and gaseous fuel production progresses, the role of coal in the global economy will become more and more important.
