WV Metro News reported that 4 West Virginia coking coal producers are forming the Metallurgical Coal Producers Association to focus on issues specific to the metallurgical coal industry. The four coal producers are Contura Energy Inc, Coronado Coal LLC, Metinvest Group subsidiary United Coal Company LLC and RAMACO Resources Inc. Leaders of the newly-formed association say the organization was prompted by the realities of a changing coal industry brought on by reduced demand for thermal coal and a subsequent shift of production by the founding members more toward metallurgical coal.

Metallurgical Coal Producers Association Chairman Mr David Stetson said “Traditionally, coal has been understood through its use in generating electricity. We hope to expand the general public’s knowledge and understanding of coal in our everyday lives. Metallurgical coal makes progress possible and is critical to our economy. Automobiles, household appliances, bridges, and buildings are a few products requiring steel which is made possible by metallurgical coal.”

The metallurgical coal association is a result of restructuring and expanding the Virginia Coal & Energy Alliance. The changes are effective immediately, and the association says it will begin its initial advocacy efforts in Virginia and West Virginia.
