CoalImP is the Association for UK Coal Importers and Producers
CoalImP, the Association of UK Coal Importers and Producers, includes major coal users and producers, rail companies, ports and other service providers in the UK coal supply chain. The Association aims to present, promote and protect the role of coal in the UK. The twelve members account for the handling, transportation and use of the majority of imported supplies into the country as well as UK coal production.
