Europa diversifica importações como alternativa ao carvão russo

July 27, 2022 - A Rússia fornece 70 por cento das importações de carvão térmico da Europa – que é queimado nas centrais para gerar eletricidade – mas a UE previu proibir as importações de carvão russo a partir de meados 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.
