China's second largest coal base Inner Mongolia plans to stabilize its coal capacity at 1.3 billion tonnes per annum in the 14th Five-year Plan period (2021-25), according to a document issued by the regional energy administration.
The authority also pledged to upgrade coal capacity in Ordos and strictly control production of rare types like coking coal in Wuhai and other regions.
The government stressed the importance of releasing advanced capacity and a bunch of modern coal mines will be constructed in Ordos. The coal capacity of new mines is asked to reach 3 Mtpa at least.
Inner Mongolia will also streamline and upgrade the railway network to adopt more advanced technologies such as IoT and mobile network into coal logistics. It will also set up an emergency storage system in eastern Inner Mongolia.
It also put great importance of green development of coal industry. It said no more coal mines will be set up at grassland, and no mines should expand new capacity.
By 2025, all coal mines in the region will be upgraded in line with environmental standards.
