B.C. steelmaking coal produced with fewer GHG emissions than any competing jurisdiction

Dec 7, 2022

B.C. is Canada’s largest producer of steelmaking (metallurgical) coal and is leading the charge on responsible mining. Here in B.C., we produce steelmaking coal with fewer greenhouse gas emissions than any other competing jurisdiction.

Steelmaking coal is an essential ingredient in low-carbon infrastructure like wind turbines. Steel is critical to many of the things we rely on each day – our buildings, vehicles, rapid transit and many everyday household items.

This graphic was prepared by the Mining Association of BC (MABC). For further information about steelmaking coal, read our recent blog post or review the Steelmaking Coal Fact Sheet.
