China Mulls Ban on Transporting Coal, Ore, Steel by Truck
China is mulling a ban on transporting coal, ore and steel by road in several regions, forcing a shift to rail in an attempt to tackle the country’s smog problem.
The Ministry of Ecology and Environment has been considering a rule that coal must be transported on the country’s mostly electrified rail network by the end of September, banning the use of diesel-fueled trucks to make shipments, Caixin has learned from sources close to the matter.
