Europa aumenta sus importaciones de carbón como alternativa al gas ruso

July 27, 2022 - Rusia es el mayor proveedor de carbón térmico – que se quema para generar electricidad – de Europa, pero la UE se prepara para prohibirl as importaciones de carbón ruso a partir de agosto.

European buyers have had to temporarily set aside green aspirations in a rush for coal as the region’s energy crisis deepens, ramping up shipments from Australia, South America, Colombia and South Africa while tightening the global market, according to Reuters.

Thermal coal is considered one of the most carbon-heavy energy sources and Europe had been weaning itself off the fuel to meet pollution regulations and climate targets, Reuters said.
