Coal Derivatives at ICE

ICE Futures Europe offers futures and options based on the world’s most important international coal hubs, including Newcastle (Australia), Richards Bay (South Africa) and Rotterdam (Europe), as well as the emerging markets of South China and Indonesia. Companies can hedge their price exposure around the clock on one single electronic platform and clearing house, benefitting from significant capital efficiencies through margin offsets across ICE coal and the wider energy portfolio.

As a vital fuel for the power generation industry, coal is a key component of the international energy complex. The advent of clean coal technology is transforming the coal industry into an alternative fossil fuel source and an important low-cost fuel for new generation capacity.
