In July this year, China exported 382,000 mt of metallurgical coke, down 60.2 percent year on year as Chinese mills were increasing crude steel production and demand in the local market was stable at high levels. Moreover, this year there have been a number of inspections at coke plants as the government aimed to control emissions. Accordingly, there were short-term stoppages at some plants producing coke, which also prevented export growth.

In the January-July period of the year, China exported 4.331 million mt of metallurgical coke, down 22.8 percent year on year.
