China’s Coal Production by Type
The China Energy Group of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory produces some excellent analyses and data sets.
The Energy Primer, which accompanies the China Energy Databook, is first-rate in setting out data and dynamics associated with the political economy of China’s energy production and use.
The following are taken from the Energy Primer.
About three quarters of the coal that China produces is bituminous coal, most of the rest is anthracite, and lignite and brown coal make up the remaining 4%. Coking coal accounts for about 45% of total bituminous coal, although less than 40% of coking coal is used for coking.
