      By deducting freight rate at the point of sales in case of transporting anthracite from government storages or mines to a briquet manufactory by automobile.
      By deducting 2000won/ton when power coal(excluding power plant usage) contains more than 10% of grain size bigger than 25mm.
      By multiplying grade 3 average quantity of heat unit price to each grade average quantity of heat for anthracite grade 2 and over.
