A government resolution to not deliver household raw coal to the capital city is under implementation from today. The government made the resolution on February 28, 2018 considering that air pollution will decrease by 50% when raw coal is replaced by refined coal. Further, households and entities shall not use raw coal and the resolution is not applicable to licensed entities to manufacture electricity and heating energy. Using refined coal is economical for households. For instance, a household using 4-5 tons of raw coal during winter will use 2 times less refined coal. Refined coal has 2 times higher heat unit and burning time is 2 times longer.
