The Energy, Transportation and Metals division of Cargill, Cargill ETM, will close its European Power & Gas Trading and Global Coal businesses.
These changes come after a thorough review of its strategy to offer distinctive, long-term value to its customers. Significant changes in the coal and European power and gas markets have led Cargill ETM to withdraw from these two sectors. Cargill ETM remains dedicated to serving customers in the petroleum, petrochemicals, iron ore and steel, ocean freight and North American gas and power markets.
