SHANGHAI — China’s coke exports hit a nine-month low in January despite the lifting of restrictions on shipments.

China exported 40,000 tonnes of coke last month, down 33.3 percent from December and 42.9 percent lower than a year earlier, Chinese customs data show.

January coke export prices averaged $359.50 per tonne, down 11.2 percent from $404.90 the previous month and 15.6 percent below $425.80 in January 2012.

China removed its 40-percent coke export tax this year (, Dec. 17) as well as its quota on outbound coke shipments (, Jan. 8).
