The comprehensive scientific and technical program "Clean Coal" includes 15 major projects that solve the problems of safe mining and processing of coal, the creation of digital solutions and technologies for the coal industry, ecology and health. The total amount of financing will amount to 3.6 billion rubles, including 2 billion — funds from investors, 1.6 billion — within the framework of the state program "Science".
"The Clean Coal – Green KuZbass program is a new strategy for the development of the region's industry and its future. During the implementation of innovative projects, more than a thousand high-tech jobs will be created. The use of the developed products and technologies will improve the state of the environment, increase safety and productivity at industrial enterprises. Already in the first year after the completion of the development of the program, an income of 4 billion rubles is expected. Part of the funds can be directed to the development of the social sphere," Sergey Tsivilev stressed.
The implementation of the Clean Coal — Green KuZbass program will begin this year and will last until 2026. Innovative projects will be implemented to develop and implement technologies for environmentally balanced mining operations based on the digital transformation of the processes of drilling and blasting destruction of rocks in the sections of the region, integrated coal processing technology to obtain a new type of raw materials for the production of carbon fibers.
A digital platform will be created to monitor greenhouse gas emissions and reduce them using clean coal technologies. Ecopolygon will begin work on the development of the latest technologies of reclamation and reclamation. An innovative technology of wastewater treatment at coal mining enterprises has been developed and implemented in an open way. The largest personalized program for the prevention of diseases of the circulatory system will be formed for the industrial regions of Russia.
It is assumed that 85 results of intellectual activity will be created and registered with Rospatent and the Eurasian Patent Office during the implementation of the projects of the integrated scientific and technical program. 405 researchers, more than half of whom are younger than 39 years old, will work on the assigned tasks as part of research groups.
The performers will be 16 universities and research institutes of Russia, including 5 Kuzbass universities: Kemerovo State University, T.F. Gorbachev Kuzbass State Technical University, Siberian State Industrial University, Research Institute of Complex Problems of Cardiovascular Diseases, Federal Research Center of Coal and Coal Chemistry SB RAS.
Industrial partners and customers are giants of the coal and coal industry, innovative companies.
Recall, the comprehensive scientific and technical program of the full innovation cycle "Development and implementation of a complex of technologies in the fields of exploration and extraction of solid minerals, industrial safety, bioremediation, creation of new products of deep processing from coal raw materials with a consistent reduction of the environmental burden on the environment and risks to the life of the population" (KNTP "Clean Coal - Green Kuzbass"), developed by the participants of the Kuzbass Scientific and Educational Center under the coordinating role of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.
