NEDO Signed MOU with the Ministry of Mining of Mongolia Regarding a Demonstration Project for a Dry Coal Preparation Technology System

February 18, 2016

On February 16th, NEDO concluded an MOU with the Ministry of Mining of Mongolia to collaborate on the Demonstration Project for a Dry Coal Preparation Technology System.

This project will take place in Mongolia, which has scarce water resources, and demonstrate the energy-saving dry coal preparation technology that uses no water and consumes less electricity compared to the conventional water-based coal preparation technology. Using the new technology, this project aims to achieve approximately 20% energy savings compared to the conventional water-based coal preparation technology.

The MOU was signed by NEDO Executive Director Munehiko Tsuchiya and Mr. Davaasuren Artag, State Secretary of the Ministry of Mining of Mongolia. Mr. Rentsendoo Jigjid, Minister of the Mining of Mongolia, also attended the ceremony.
