"Countries around the world are using our metallurgical coal to make steel needed for building modern cities and our high quality thermal coal is delivering tomorrow's energy needs through high efficiency, low emission coal-fired power plants," QRC chief executive Ian Macfarlane said.

"Queensland coal was exported to 30 different countries or territories," he said. The export destinations included China, Indonesia, Italy, Gibraltar, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, the Philippines, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.

Of the 223.2 million mt exports last year, 7.1 million mt came from New Hope's Queensland Bulk Handling at the Port of Brisbane, 29.8 million mt from Adani's Abbot Point coal terminal and 48.9 million mt from BHP Mitsubishi Alliance's Hay Point terminal.

Exports from state-owned Dalrymple Bay coal terminal reached 69.5 million mt, and exports from the Port of Gladstone through its facilities RG Tanna and Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal were 67.9 million mt, QRC said.
