China’s thermal coal market may remain buoyant on multi factors

More news from China that confirms a significant jump in coal usage this year, and therefore most probably a jump in China's CO2 emissions.

"It is true that hot weather and lower-than-expected hydro output, partly for the control of floods, pushed up demand for coal-fired electricity in the past months. But, it is more persuasive that stronger power demand from the industrial sector is the major driver for sustained solid growth in coal demand. And, this is expected to underpin thermal coal demand continuously in the months ahead, after the end of the hot summer ... Daily coal consumption averaged 721,000 tonnes at China’s six major coastal utilities in July, up 10.5% from a year ago; while that reached 798,000 tonnes over August 1-18, rising 13.2% from the year prior, both far more than expected."
