12/25/2018


The last coal mine in Germany was closed on December 21, Deutsche Welle reports.



During a solemn ceremony at the Prosper-Haniel mine in Bottrop in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, President of the Federal Republic of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier stated that “part of German history” had come to an end, without which the country and its development would be unthinkable over the past two centuries.

Steinmeier expressed confidence that the Ruhr area will continue to play an important role in the German power industry.

According to him, an association of research centers and enterprises has been created here thanks to a dense network of higher education institutions and numerous initiatives to support new initiatives. In the future, this will ensure "sustainable development of energy options."

The President of Germany thanked the trade unions, who, together with the state, contributed to the peaceful and responsible curtailing of coal mining in Germany.

As the deputy official representative of the German government, Ulrike Demmer, noted at a press conference in Berlin, the coal industry in Germany ensured industrialization and thus the prosperity of the country.
