Quality Control Laboratory

The modern сoal preparation plant Shchedrukhinskaya produces clean coal of premium quality. The coal is cleaned down to 4-11% of inherent ash.

Laboratory and Technical Control Department

Our accredited chemical laboratory maintains adequate quality control of the produced coal. The laboratory was established in order to determine quality of raw coal and clean coal,

to collect samples and to perform tests as well. The priority mission of the Technical Control Department is systematic monitoring of ROM coal from suppliers and of coal we produce.
