The opportunity to export Sakhalin peat to China

Deliveries of Sakhalin peat to the People's Republic of China were discussed by the First Deputy Chairman of the Sakhalin Oblast Government, Sergey Sheredekin and Zhang Shenji, General Director of Green Energy (a subsidiary of the State Grid Company of China).

There is an opportunity to organize the export of fuel to China, the development of which in Russia has practically ceased in comparison with Soviet times - peat (and in the Far East it was not conducted at all). The task of the Chinese top manager during a meeting with a Sakhalin official was to clarify the degree of interest of local authorities in the construction of a plant for the production of peat fuel pellets with the participation of Chinese capital. China is interested in the project, since 38 power stations have already been built in the country, where biomass (peat, straw) is used as fuel. Every year they need to burn up to 38 million tons of biofuels, and this amount also includes the import of fuel. On Sakhalin, there are 33 peat deposits with total reserves of 550 million tons.

At the moment, the Chinese initiative is under consideration by local authorities.
