Government DECIDES TO prohibited raw coal CONSUMPTION IN 2019

At its regular meeting on February 28, the Cabinet made following decisions:

From May 15, 2019, citizens of Ulaanbaatar, entities and companies intend to use raw coal. This decision does not apply to entities licensed to operate electricity and heat generation in Bayanzurkh, Chingeltei, Sukhbaatar, Bayangol, Khan-Uul and Songinokhairkhan districts.

The Cabinet ordered the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar and the corresponding Ministers to study the demand, supply and ways to ensure the price stability of refined coal, and reach a decision by July 1 this year.

The Cabinet sees that it is possible to replace the raw coal consumed by the capital city residents with 600 thousand tons briquettes.. In other words, a household that burns 4-5 tons of coal in heating season will consume 3 tons of briquettes., which is an economically beneficial alternative. For instance, coal from Nalaikh is purchased at MNT 170 thousand per ton. Five tons of coal will cost MNT 850 thousand whereas three tons of refined coal will cost MNT 660 thousand, thus saving MNT 190 thousand.
The government believes that the use of refined briquettes to prohibit raw coal will significantly reduce emissions and reduce air pollution.

About 202 thousand households in the ger areas of Ulaanbaatar burn 1.1 million tons of raw coal in winter, producing around 80 percent of smog in the capital city.
