    Construction of coal enrichment plant planned at Kara-Keche coal field

    September 27, 2023 - Central Asian News Service


      Kyrgyzstan, Sept. 27 -- Construction of a coal enrichment plant is planned near Kara-Keche coal field. The given coal will be then used by the Bishkek combined heat and power plant, Nurlan Sharsheyev, representative of the Ministry of Natural Resources, said.

      He said some consider the Bishkek combined heat and power plant (BCHPP) as the major source of air pollution. However, according to UN study, just 10% of pollution is attributed to BCHPP.

      "Our problem is in the amount of burnt coal. It is higher than in other sectors. If 1.8 million tons of coal is burnt in cold season, then 1.5 million tons are consumed by BCHPP. The decision was made to build the coal enrichment plant at Kara-Keche coal field, which will allow to reduce the volume of emissions," the official said.

      Construction of the plant is planned within 2023-2025. "We plan to use the simplest coal enrichment method - drying coal from 20% to 10% of moisture. We plan to build same plant in the south of the country," he said. Published by HT Digital Content Services with permission from Central Asian News service.
