Indonesian Coal and Bauxite Exports

Coal

In September, Indonesian coal exports reached a new high of 45.7 Mt (including lignite) and were up 9.4 Mt year-on-year, Bank Indonesia data show. Even with shipments curtailed at the start of the year as a result of the country implementing a temporary coal export ban, exports in January-September were 13.1 Mt above the same period last year at 339.9 Mt.

Meanwhile, Indonesian bauxite exports increased slightly year-on-year to 1.0 Mt in September, with exports in the first nine month of the year up 3.3 Mt to 14.7 Mt. The country’s government has previously announced a bauxite export ban will be implemented in 2022.
