Thirdly, within the framework of road and transport strategy research, long-term and medium-term strategies and plans for sustainable road and transport of Ulaanbaatar will be developed, and a road and transport accident information platform will be introduced.
Heat loss reduction of prefabricated apartment carried out in 8 buildings
The Ulaanbaatar Clean Air Project is implemented between 2020 and 2023. The project aims to provide low-exhaust emission heating equipment and services to residents in the capital's ger areas, and to develop medium-term measures to reduce exhaust emissions in Ulaanbaatar. In this context, three complete equipment for air and environment quality control were supplied, and state-owned schools and kindergartens were insulated. Moreover, prefabricated apartment heat loss reduction carried out in eight buildings. There are more than 1,000 prefabricated apartments in Ulaanbaatar. If the heat loss is reduced here, the energy of one power plant can be saved.
3 tons of carbon dioxide emitted when 1 ton of food waste buried
Ulaanbaatar Community Food Waste Recycling Project is financed by the Asian Development Bank’s Japan Fund for Prosperous and Resilient Asia and the Pacific. It is a pilot project for food waste recycling with the participation of citizens and organizations and consists of three main components. In the framework of recycling food waste with the participation of citizens, 50 households and five organizations will be tested and researched, and a food waste recycling plant will be established. Three tons of carbon dioxide are released when one ton of food waste is buried. It is more harmful to the environment and building a recycling plant is necessary.

In this context, a centralized landfill building will be built to bury the waste that are qualified with hygienic requirements, a construction waste recycling plant will be built, and a machinery will be supplied for the centralized landfill.

There is great expectation about the ger area housing development project among the residents. Monitor the performance, make a timely plan and present your work every month.” In addition, he ordered to work in a coherent, speedy and percipient manner.
