Group

The JSW Group is the largest producer of high-quality hard (type 35) coking coal and a major producer of coke in the European Union.

  • JSW’s coking coal is used predominantly in the production of coke which, in addition to iron ore, is an essential component of feedstock for the production of steel.
  • In its coking plants, the JSW Group processes approximately 50% of the coking coal it produces, thus enabling the Group to offer a final product that is more processed and of a greater value.
  • The Company is also a producer of steam coal, sold mainly to power plants and CHP plants.
