Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation

Citation

“Improving energy efficiency in coal production is wedded to an increase in the unit capacity of mining equipment, the use of modern degasification systems. Deeper processing of coal and a cluster approach will help reduce energy consumption in the future not only in the coal industry, but also in the transportation sector. All of this is covered by the coal industry development program for the period until 2030 approved by the Russian government.”
