The Confederation of UK Coal Producers (or CoalPro) is the UK trade association for coal mining companies. Full members include Banks Developments, Celtic Energy, Kier Mining, Miller Argent, Hall Construction, Hargreaves Services, and Land Engineering Services.

Function[edit]

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.

History[edit]

The UK coal industry employs 4,000 people directly. Around one third of the UK's electricity is generated by coal power. The organization was formed in 1991.
