Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A team of researchers from the biopower plant of Novosibirsk, Russia, has worked in Zavkhan aimag of Mongolia. The team collected data from Ikh-Uul, Tosontsengel and Ider soums, where the largest number of yaks inhabit.

With the collected data, the researchers are to prepare a complete study suggesting a solution to meet the heating and power demand of the province with biogas alternatives. Based on the study results, a project would be implemented in the Zavkhan province.

The project will aim at reducing wood consumption for heat, and improving environmental protection in general.

Although the first instalment of project investment is estimated to be a rather large amount, 85 percent of the investment can be settled through bank loan if the provincial administration would be willing to provide the 15 percent.

If mobilized, the project would build model wintering places and townhouses powered by biogas.
