The article pays special attention to the technogenic impact of the coal industry on the environment. The rating of countries by emissions of pollutants into the atmospheric air is presented. Coal, being the most important source of heat power for the Republic of Tyva, causes man-made damage to the natural environment. The main problem is related to air pollution with carbonaceous aerosol. The currently functioning coal mining enterprises of the Republic of Tuva. The main indicators reflecting the negative impact on the atmospheric air of the Republic of Tuva are analyzed. Measures to reduce the environmental load are considered.
