The Confederation of UK Coal Producers (or CoalPro) is the UK trade association for coal mining companies. Members include ATH Resources, Banks Developments, Celtic Energy, Kier Mining, Maltby Colliery Ltd, Miller Argent, Powerfuel PLC, Scottish Resources Group, and UK Coal.
It represents 90% of the UK coal producing industry, now that it is made up of disparate smaller companies, having once been run by the National Coal Board until 1987.
The UK coal industry employs 9,000 people directly. Around one third of the UK's electricity is generated by coal power. The organisation was formed in 1991.
