Mongolia seeks to cut reduce air pollution

Advert Travel Gazette

The Mongolian government has announced it would impose a ban on the burning of low-grade coal for domestic use in its capital Ulan Bator beginning on May 15, 2019, in an effort to reduce air pollution.

This decision does not apply to the thermal power plants operating in Ulan Bator.

The Mongolian Government has ordered the mayor of the capital city and relevant ministers to study production, sales and price reduction of processed fuel.

It is estimated that it is possible to replace the low-grade coal consumed by the residents of Ulan Bator with 600,000 tons of processed fuel.
