Czechs return to coal mining


Czechs return to coal mining

The Czech Republic was for a long time one of the largest producers of hard coal in Europe. However, in recent years, mining of this resource has declined and it has begun to be replaced by greener energy sources. Now we are seeing a reversal of this trend, and Czech coal mines are coming back to life.

Reasons for the return to coal mining in the Czech Republic

The most important reason for the return to coal mining in the Czech Republic is the demand for this raw material. In recent years, there has been an increase in energy prices, which has prompted the country’s power companies to increase the use of their own hard coal as an energy source. In addition, during the COVID-19 pandemic, when demand for electricity increased due to remote work, coal proved to be one of the cheapest and most accessible energy sources.

Future possibilities

However, the future of coal mining in the Czech Republic is not clear-cut. Indeed, there are ways to reduce the negative effects of coal mining and balance its use with environmental protection. It is worth noting the development of new technologies, such as carbon capture and storage, which reduces coal-related greenhouse gas emissions.


In order to be able to operate for as long as possible, Czech coal companies and mining-related companies should ensure not only the continued profitability of their operations, but also place emphasis on promotion and development. In the latter aspect, for example, participation in industry events such as the EXPO KATOWICE trade fair can help them. Why? For several important reasons:

  • Brand promotion – Industry trade shows are an excellent opportunity to increase brand awareness and promote their products and services. By participating in the fair, Czech mining companies will have the opportunity to showcase their innovative solutions and establish contacts with potential customers and business partners.
  • Learning about new trends and technologies – Industry events are also an ideal opportunity to learn about the latest trends and technologies in the mining industry and to talk with other entrepreneurs about best practices in the industry.
  • Networking – Industry trade shows are the best place to make new business contacts. Czech mining companies will have the opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs in the industry, exchange experiences and establish new business relationships.
  • Selling products and services – The industry fair is also an excellent opportunity to sell products and services. Companies will be able to present their products and services to potential customers, as well as finalize contracts with existing customers.

Therefore, participation in industry fairs such as EXPO KATOWICE is very important for Czech mining companies, as it allows them to promote their brand, learn about new trends and technologies, establish business contacts and sell products and services.
