National Development and Reform Commission: It is estimated that the new coal production capacity will exceed 200 million tons this year

According to the National Development and Reform Commission, in the first half of this year, through various methods such as the commissioning of coal mines under construction, nuclear increase of coal production capacity, intelligent transformation and expansion of coal mines, and production capacity reduction of coal mines, a total of 140 million new production capacity was added. More than ton/year, of which 90 million tons/year of coal mines under construction are put into production, and the nuclear increase of production coal production capacity is about 30 million tons/year. Ordos City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region approved the temporary land use for open-pit coal mines, restoring production capacity of 18 million tons/year. At present, coal mines whose production capacity has been replaced and are in the process of approval for an increase have a production capacity of more than 40 million tons per year. In addition, there are still 70 million tons of coal mines under construction and put into operation one after another. In the second half of the year, nearly 110 million tons of new production capacity will be added. /year.

While actively releasing production capacity, a batch of backward production capacity is also speeding up withdrawing. Over the past 5 years, coal capacity reduction work has achieved positive results, and the coal production capacity structure has been optimized. The number of coal mines nationwide has dropped from more than 10,000 at the end of 2015 to about 4,700, and the average production capacity of a single coal mine has increased from 580,000 tons per year to 1.1 million tons per year. Over 50 years, more than 50 coal mines with an annual output of 10 million tons have been built. Large-scale coal mines with an annual output of 1.2 million tons and above have become green, intelligent, and secure. The coal production accounts for more than 80% of the coal supply. Capability, quality and flexibility have been greatly improved, and the ability to cope with short-term fluctuations in demand has been enhanced, which can better meet the domestic coal demand.
