Coal industry's decade-long drop in productivity hits reverse
Years of declining efficiency in the coal industry may be finally coming to an end, especially in the U.S., where miners based in the country's top producing regions have stabilized or even increased productivity at both surface and underground coal operations in the past two years, a study shows. According to SNL Energy's latest report, coal mine productivity has increased even in regions where output has fallen, such as in Central Appalachia, where most of the U.S. coal is produced.
