Chinese energy corporation meets with PM to address Ulaanbaatar’s air pollution
The President of state-owned energy company China Datang Corporation (CDC), Jinhang Chen, met with Prime Minister J.Erdenebat on Friday to talk about collaborating with Mongolia in reducing Ulaanbaatar’s air pollution.
Chen pointed out that CDC, which processes synthetic fuel from coal, is working on a project to reduce air pollution in Beijing. He said that CDC is interested in collaborating with Mongolia by investing in the Mongolian energy and thermal energy sectors.
Prime Minister J.Erdenebat noted that the primary cause of air pollution in Ulaanbaatar is the burning of fuel in the ger districts. He said that there should be a comprehensive effort to expand energy distribution in the ger districts. The PM said that Mongolia will study opportunities to cooperate with CDC.
The PM emphasized that finding financing for a project to reduce air pollution with the help of an experienced foreign corporation like CDC is not difficult.
Chen said that the company will present a proposal for a comprehensive project to reduce Ulaanbaatar’s air pollution.
