Maximum production and delivery were in lignite
Marketable production of solid fuels was 109 thousand 907 tonnes for hard coal, 6 million 804 thousand 714 tonnes for lignite(1)
and 379 thousand 823 tonnes for coke derived from hard coal in May 2019.For the same month, deliveries(2)
were 2 million 150 thousand 343 tonnes for hard coal, 6 million 381 thousand 187 tonnes for lignite and 398 thousand 760 tonnes for coke derived from hard coal. The lowest ratio of production to deliveries was in hard coal
The lowest ratio(3)
of marketable production to deliveries was in hard coal by 5.1%. This ratio was 95.3% for coke derived from hard coal and 106.6% for lignite. Ratio of production to deliveries, May 2019Hard coal and lignite were delivered mostly to the thermal power plants
Distribution of solid fuels according to breakdown of main delivery places was 52% to thermal power plants, 24.5% to coking plants, 8% to industry (except iron and steel industry) for hard coal whereas, 88% to thermal power plants, 7.4% to industry (except iron and steel industry) for lignite and 95% to iron and steel industry for coke derived from hard coal.The next release on this subject will be on August 29, 2019.
(1) Asphaltite is included within lignite.
(2) Dispatching of the fuel from production, imports and stocks for consuming purposes.
(3) It shows the proportion of marketable production in deliveries.
Ratio of production to deliveries = (marketable production quantity / delivery quantity)*100
