July 2013

This month, World Coal focuses on the global coal-fired power industry. We include reports on the US, European and Asia-Pacific power markets, as well as taking a look at global mercury emissions regulation. We also invite three leading equipment suppliers to provide their thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. The rest of the magazine looks at coal handling and storage with articles on conveyor systems, coal sampling and analysis, and coal storage and stockyard management. Finally, this month's Industry View from Martin Christie, executive director of Bettercoal, offers an insight into this great new industry initiative that aims to bring transparency to the coal supply chain.
