 China to ban coal use in Beijing by 2020

7 August 2014 – China’s decision to ban the use of coal from Beijing and other major cities by 2020 grabbed headlines this week, but experts are saying it is unlikely to have a significant impact on the country’s coal consumption. Despite the nation increasing efforts to curb air pollution, demand for the fossil fuel in China is expected to stay steady, as the country’s population and economy expand. Coal fired power heating is a major generator of greenhouse gases and, according to data form the US Energy Administration (EIA), it has helped turning the Asian giant into the world’s largest emitter of carbon and other heat-trapping gases.

According to official Xinhua News agency, coal accounted for 25% of Beijing’s energy consumption in 2012 and 22% of the fine particles floating in the city’s air. Motor vehicles, industrial production and general dust also contributed to pollution in the city of 21 million people.
