Coal production decline in 2019 is related to the capacity decrease of Saknakhshiri.

As of Geostat’s report, the main consumer of mined coal in Georgia was the local industry. Even today, the private sector consumes a significant amount of coal, its main customers are metallurgical and cement companies.
According to Geostat, in 2019 the country imported 238 thousand tons of bituminous coal, 100% of which was absorbed by the industrial sector. In addition, 144.9 thousand tons of “industrial coke furnaces" were imported to Georgia last year, the main part of which was consumed by the metallurgical sector.
