Coal Mining in Germany to 2020

Published: Feb 29, 2016 | Pages: 31 | Publisher: Timetric | Industry: Mining | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Synopsis
Timetric's 'Coal Mining in Germany to 2020' report comprehensively covers German reserves of coal, reserves by grade and proximate analysis of German lignite by deposits, German coal versus coal produced by other major producing countries, historic and forecast data on coal production, production split by grade and type, coal prices, historic and forecast coal consumption, imports, and imports by country. The report also includes factors affecting demand for coal, profiles of major coal producing companies in Germany, and information on active and exploration coal projects. The Fiscal Regime section provides information about the country's regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to coal mining in the country. It is an essential tool for companies active in German mining, and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Summary
Germany had the world's sixth-largest proven coal reserves at 40.5 billion tonnes (Bnt) at the end of 2014, accounting for 4.5% of the global total. Proven coal reserves mainly consist of sub-bituminous and lignite grades which account for more than 99% of the country's total coal reserves.

Scope
The report contains an overview of the German coal mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity. It also provides information about German reserves, historic and forecast data on coal production, production by grade and type, consumption and imports, the competitive landscape and active and exploration coal projects.

Reasons to Buy
Gain an understanding of the coal mining industry in Germany, coal reserves, historic and forecast data on coal production, coal prices, historic and forecast data on coal consumption and imports, demand drivers, active and exploration coal projects, the competitive landscape and the country's fiscal regime.

Key Highlights
The country was the world's eighth-largest coal producer, with production of 185.8 million tonnes (Mt) in 2014. Much of the coal produced is lignite, which is mainly used in coal-fired power plants while hard coal production originates from the three mines - Ibbenburen, Prosper-Haniel and Auguste Victoria in North Rhine-Westphalia. Lignite deposits are scattered across the areas of Rhineland, Helmstedt, central Germany and Lusatia. The average gross calorific value of lignite found in the country lies in the range of 1,864.2-2,700.8Kcal/kg. The German mining industry is governed by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (FMET) and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). The Federal Mining Act 1980 is the main act regulating the country's mining industry.
