    This report is the first edition of a market survey outside of the energy use of coal in Russia.

    The purpose of the study is to analyze the market for non-traditional and innovative use of different types of coals, as well as products of their processing.

    The objects of research are actually different types of coals, as well as semi-coke, activated carbon and other products that are substitutes for coals.

    This work is a desk study. The sources of information were the data of Rosstat, statistics of railway transportation of the Russian Federation, industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of securities issuers, as well as websites of semi-coke producers.

    Chronological scope of the study: 2018-2019

    Research geography: Russian Federation.


    The report consists of 4 Sections, contains 78 pages, including 18 Figures and 15 Tables.

    The first chapter of the report examines the main areas of use of coal outside the energy sector and ferrous metallurgy, in particular in the production of alumina, in the cement industry, in the firing of ceramic and silicate materials, for the purification of natural sugar, in nonferrous metallurgy, in the production of carbon electrodes, technical silicon and sorbents. ...

    The second chapter of the report is devoted to shallow coal processing products, primarily the production of semi-coke in Russia.

    The third chapter provides information on the directions and technologies of deep processing of coals using the principles of gasification and hydrogenation.

    The fourth chapter of the report describes several innovative carbon materials, including those produced using nanotechnology, such as intercalated graphite and graphene.

    At the end of the report, brief conclusions are formulated and forecasts of coal consumption up to 2025 are given.

    The Appendix contains the contact details of the companies.


    Target audience of the study:

    - market participants of natural coal, ferroalloys, graphite electrodes, semi-coke and chains of its further consumption (production of ferroalloys, non-ferrous metallurgy) - producers, consumers, traders;

    - potential investors;

    - researchers of innovative carbon materials;

    The proposed study claims to be a reference guide for marketing services and decision-makers working in the market for natural coal and innovative carbon materials.
