Black coal plays a major role in Australia’s electricity, steel, cement and other manufacturing industries.
Black coal generates more than 54% of the Australia’s electricity used by business, industry and households, 4.7 million tonnes of metallurgical coal are used each year by the Australian steel industry and coal is an essential ingredient in cement making.
The use of black coal has underpinned the development of many of the world’s advanced economies, and is one of the most important commodities for developing economies around the world.
