From 3 April, the customers of the Eurex derivatives exchange that are admitted on EEX will also be able to trade and clear the products on the Natural Gas Derivatives Market through their existing infrastructure. This comprises the futures for the GASPOOL and NetConnect Germany (NCG) gas market areas.

In addition, all new products on the Derivatives Market for Emission Allowances will also be available for trading from the end of April. Moreover, it is planned that Eurex participants will be able to trade coal futures probably from the middle of the year.
