Romania has to pay the EU for using Romanian coal

Romania will be allowed to use its own coal, has declared the European Commissary of Energy, Miguel Arias Canete, in a recent meeting at Bruxelles with Romanian representatives of the energetic sector. But Romania will have to respect the new European norms on environment. That means, Romania will have to pay the EU for using its own coal.

Such a measure will completely bankrupt Romania’s thermal power industry using coal in just a few years. This industry is already in deep crisis and endless problems and scandals since the fall of communism.
