CoalImP is the Association for UK Coal Importers and Producers
CoalImP, the Association of UK Coal Importers and Producers, includes major coal users and producers, transport companies, ports and other service providers in the UK coal supply chain. The Association aims to present, promote and protect the role of coal in the UK. The eleven members account for the handling and use of the majority of imported supplies into the country as well as UK coal production.
Press Release 8th February 2017: CoalImP responds to the 'coal closure consultation' - In the consultation document it is stated that “Government wants to see an orderly transition away from unabated coal generation”. CoalImP is strongly supportive of the concept of an orderly transition, but is unconvinced that Government’s aspirations for this are met in its proposals.
