About the Conference

CoalMint’s Asia Coal Outlook & Trade Summit will focus not only on the day-to-day dynamics of the global coal market but the underlying trends that could make a long-term impact. From the impact of geopolitical conflicts and altered trade dynamics to sustainability paradigms and the upheavals in the world energy market, the conference will witness engaging discussions on the topics which are at the core of the energy transition. Delegates can look forward to informative sessions on disruptive mining technologies, hedging and risk management, the evolution of carbon trading and its significance and the impact of decarbonisation on the mining and shipping industries. The focus, as always, will be on intense knowledge sharing and interpersonal interaction.

The ‘Asian Century’

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) forecasts the continent’s growth at 5.3% in 2023. Is it possible to imagine that growth sans coal? For Asian coal consumers, the challenge is to ensure energy security while conforming to sustainability paradigms. The future of metallurgical coal and coke also revolves around Asia, the epicentre of global steel production.

Why Asia

  • 4.9% GDP Growth
  • 1.3 Terawatts coal-fired power capacity
  • 4.75 Billion Population
  • 60% of Global Coal Production of 7,900 MnT
