Process description


We research new mining and processing technologies as well as new products that will deliver maximum operational efficiency and minimal environmental impact for all stakeholders.


Regular upgrades of our mining units enable us to maintain a leading position within our sector.


Coal washing reduces ash and increases heat content, thereby reducing the environmental footprint of our products, whilst raising their market value.


Advanced transport infrastructure enables us to reliably and cost-effectively supply our major markets, Russia, Europe and Asia-Pacific, and minimise the environmental impact of transportation.


SUEK’s extensive sales network ensures reliable coal supplies to customers in 48 countries, and effective delivery of our ‘premium products for premium customers’ strategy.


Our upgraded power generating facilities consistently and reliably supply heat and electricity to 6 regions of Russia.


We restore natural habitats for future generations in the areas where we operate.
