Event Overview

The future for coal in Korea is looking bright.


The introduction of Power Generation Plans has reformed the way Korea imports its energy sources, permitting several new coal-fired power plants to be built. Traditionally, coal imports to Korea were determined through price, but IPPs who have won permits for new coal-fired power plants are breaking the mould, considering coal quality a higher priority and opening the market up to a wider variety of coal suppliers and service providers around the world.


This year's Coaltrans Korea connected Korea’s coal buyers with international suppliers for two days of discussion, debate and insight into the opportunities available in this growing market.

 

Buyers included:

•   KOWEPO
•   KOSEP
•   KOSPO
•   EWP
