Eurostat: Coal imports to Poland soar

The import of coal to Poland rose by 60 percent in 2017, the Parkiet daily reported citing Eurostat figures.

Russia remains the key importer of the fossil fuel to Poland. In 2017, Poland imported 13.3 million tons of coal, 8.7 million of which came from Russia – the figure accounts for 65 percent of Poland’s coal imports, the daily said.

However, shipments from countries such as Colombia and the United States grew as well.

The substantial import growth in 2017 coincided with a drop in the extraction of coal by the Polish Mining Group (PGG), the largest coal company in the European Union, by a million tones.
