COAL PRODUCTION MISMATCH IN POLAND

Two weeks ago Bartłomiej Derski presented an interesting graph, showing incongruity of coal produced in domestic mines, more specifically: shortage of coal of a certain size. While Polish producers keep mining coal of size 0-31.5mm, there is a significant insufficiency of commodity of larger sizes.

Today overproduction of MI (0-31.5mm) and MII (0-20mm) coal accounts for 25% of domestic consumption. According to latest forecasts, by 2020 that number will increase to 40% (due to the new coal-fired energy blocks, more efficient than the ones working today).
