The application of conveyor systems in the coal transportation process is considered an effective and useful solution to minimize the problem of coal dust pollution at ports.

Today's coal mining industry cannot lack a conveyor system, an important modern technology in the transportation process. Let's join Thuan Hai to learn in detail about the role and effective applications of this system for the coal industry in the article below.


Coal dust during transportation

Coal has long been known for many applications: used as fuel for steam engines and railway locomotives. Currently, people also use coal as fuel for thermal power plants and the metallurgical industry.

However, environmental pollution from coal dust is a major concern, creating significant negative impacts on the air and people's lives. This situation occurs mainly at ports, when coal dust from gathering and loading activities spreads throughout the area, creating an air filled with hazy dust. Small dust particles in coal make the air toxic and can penetrate deep into the respiratory tract, causing respiratory and health problems for humans.

To solve this problem, applying a conveyor system during coal transportation is considered an effective and useful solution to minimize the problem of coal dust pollution at ports.

What is a conveyor belt?

A conveyor belt is a system that can operate automatically to transport goods from point A to point B. In coal transportation, the conveyor belt is the system that helps move coal from cargo ships outside the harbor. to the coal warehouse (or open coal yard).

In transportation activities, conveyor belts have the effect of shortening the time to transport and preserve coal from ship to warehouse in a quick, clean, safe and environmentally friendly manner.


Benefits of using conveyor belts in coal transportation

Preserving coal, environmentally friendly:

According to assessments from businesses in the coal industry, the stage of transporting coal after import to the port is considered the most labor-intensive stage and causes the greatest environmental impact.

The conveyor system is not simply a means of transportation, but also helps preserve coal effectively. Through transportation in a closed conveyor tube, coal is kept in a closed environment, preventing dust and loss of raw materials. This not only reduces the negative impact on workers' health but also minimizes environmental pollution caused by coal dust.

Save labor

Automation technology in conveyor systems allows management and control of every stage of the process without much human intervention. The automatic sensor and control system ensures that the transport process is safe and efficient without requiring direct supervision. This not only reduces labor but also reduces the risk of workplace accidents.

Conveyors not only reduce labor but also have the ability to adjust transport distances depending on specific needs. This distance can be flexible from 50m to several hundred meters, or even longer if a smart solution is calculated and built. This flexibility helps optimize system performance, responding flexibly and effectively to the requirements of the coal industry.


As one of the leading coal importers, Thuan Hai has early invested in a closed fuel supply chain from seaports, water ports, warehouses nationwide to a fleet of barges and professional transport vehicles. In particular, Thuan Hai always focuses on environmental factors and has invested in a modern closed conveyor system to transport imported coal as soon as it arrives at Cai Mep Port, loading it safely into Cai Mep warehouse. Fast, safe, does not pollute the environment.
