In the Kemerovo Region, a new concept Clean Coal Green Kuzbass is being implemented on the initiative of the governor S.E. Tsivilev. It is a large-scale set of measures designed to transform the mining region into an environmentally friendly area with comfortable conditions for the life and health of people. Within the framework of this concept, the team of authors presents the results of research into technological solutions that allow the problem of using finely dispersed coal sludge from modern coal preparation plants to be solved. It is shown that the use of technologies for the production of suspension water-coal fuel and its combustion in adiabatic vortex chamber ensures the implementation of a closed-loop economy in coal preparation with a significant improvement of environment in coal-mining regions.
