The leadership of the Republican Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises and the Institute of Coal Chemistry and Technology have signed a cooperation agreement. This is reported on the association’s portal.

According to Tulegen Mukhanov, advisor to the executive director of the Republican Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises, the state of domestic coal chemistry is “incipient.” He noted that out of the annually mined 110 million tons of coal, only about 3 million tons are sent for chemical processing. For comparison, in China, out of 3 billion tons of mined coal, up to 220 million tons are used in coal chemistry.

Together with the institute, the Republican Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises aims to establish contacts between scientific organizations and coal enterprises in Kazakhstan. The parties plan to commercialize the results of research and scientific and technical activities in the coal chemical industry.

According to Bolat Yermagambet, head of the Institute of Coal Chemistry and Technology, coal chemistry projects will be of particular importance in promoting a carbon-neutral policy. The expert believes that with the development of coal chemistry and the production of high-value-added products, the economy of the republic will grow.

The Republican Association of Mining and Metallurgical Enterprises also reports that, in addition to the annual coal industry forum, a separate congress on coal chemistry is planned to be held in the country.
