Thanks to this, we have secured coal – not only the much talked about, that is, coal for homes, but to a large extent in energy industry, heating, small enterprises (… ), and, for example, public institutions, such as schools in small towns, ”- reported Rabinda.
The deputy minister added that the “coal gap” that has existed in Poland for many years and which was filled by private entities has been successfully eliminated. We have reversed delivery directions from the east to other directions – Rabinda confirmed.

Is it worth buying coal now?
The problem is that the coal that flows to us from different parts of the world must be sorted, Wiborgza points out. He also cites the words of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who admitted that only a fifth of what goes to the ports is suitable for smoking at home.
Therefore, in order to replace what has ceased to come from Russia, it is necessary to import 40 million tons of raw materials. According to government estimates, we currently import 14 million tons. Of this, 2.8-3.5 million tons are suitable for domestic needs.
The situation is so serious that in order to buy 1 million tons of coal for homes, Poland has to import 4 million tons of good coal, Wyborgza writes, and from this it can be concluded that stability in the coal market is only apparent. It is very likely that there will be a coal crisis in the next heating season, so it might be worth considering buying more coal.
