Brown coal of its own production. Ukraine.

The Energy Investment Company provides brown coal of its own production at reasonable prices. Given the difficult economic circumstances, the search for alternative energy sources is a priority task for all enterprises.

According to the Energy Strategy of Ukraine Till Year 2030 developed by the Institute of General Energy of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine, and according to the Decree of the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, as well the Law of Ukraine On Approval of the General Program for Development of Mineral Resources in Ukraine Till Year 2030, brown coal is a priority in the energy field. Brown coal (lignite), as well as hard and brown coal mix (brown coal fuel) can cover the existing shortage of energy resources in Ukraine. Brown coal is able to replace steam coal in boilers with powdered-coal combustion. Transportation of lignite is performed at reasonable transportation cost.

In addition to energy, brown coal (lignite) is used in other areas, such as production of mineral wax, fertilizer production, production of briquettes (charcoal briquettes) and pellets. Brown coal is used in production of leonardit, montan wax. Brown coal is also an ideal raw material for fertilizer production thanks to its high content of humic acid and leonardite.
