Black coal and briquettes made from black coal are used primarily for the production of iron and steel. There are three main producers of iron and steel in Slovakia - U.S. Steel Kosice, Zeleziarne Podbrezova, and the Indo-Spanish joint venture ArcelorMittal Gonvarri. There is also growing import demand for liquefied gas, petroleum coke, petroleum bitumen, bituminous coal, and petroleum jelly, which are used by the chemical industry and other industries for further reprocessing and the production of final goods.
