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.
