Clean stove project concludes


Between 2011 and 2013, the Air Quality Department of Ulaanbaatar sold 122,329 clean stoves to ger district residents, in some 68.6 percent of total ger district households, the department reported on Monday. The government issued 17 billion MNT in subsidies for the clean stoves which were sold at 93 percent discount, for 29,000-31,000 MNT.
The project, which aims to replace traditional stoves with clean stoves to reduce air pollution in the capital, will soon conclude. The last batch of clean stoves were distributed to 45,000 ger district households last year with the financial aid from the World Bank.
Officials reported that the clean stoves have reduced air pollution rate in Ulaanbaatar by as much as 20 percent this winter.
