Kazakhstan Extends Ban on Road Export of Most Coal Types for Six Months

The Ministry of Industry and Construction in Kazakhstan has decided to extend the ban on the road export of nearly all coal varieties for an additional six months, reports.

This decision, issued in an order by the Ministry, was initially signaled in mid-October. The primary objective, as outlined in the explanatory note accompanying the order, is to ensure the provision of coal to the population and the public sector, while also maintaining the nation’s energy security during the preparation and progression of the heating season.

The order specifically prohibits the export of hard coal, lignite, and brown coal until the conclusion of May 2024. It’s noteworthy that this restriction does not encompass two specific types of solid fuel – agglomerated coal, utilized as a water purification filter, and jet, employed as an ornamental stone.
