The economic contribution of coal exports extends well beyond the activities conducted at mine sites and includes employment related to downstream transportation providers that move coal from mines to ports, as well as the port services that prepare and load the coal for shipment abroad, and other businesses that are supported by coal export activity. Each step in this process contributes economic activity to the

In cases where the goal is to produce hydrogen H2 from coal without power export, the overall flow arrangement can be further simplified. Figure 3 is a block flow diagram for producing H2 from coal with minimal power generation. Onsite power generation is kept to a level to meet internal consumption, and if necessary, some power can also be imported.
The largest single use of coal in the steel industry is as a fuel for the blast furnace and for the production of metallurgical coke for reduction of iron ore or for injection with the hot blast. Most of the export trade is a low-volatile hard coking coal with a high swelling index and good fluidity.
