Mongolia approves standard for recyclable textile masks

AKIPRESS.COM - The world faces shortages of single-use masks as the coronavirus pandemic hits over 169 countries. Mongolia produces single-use masks and other items domestically, however imports of the raw materials come mostly from China, news.mn reports. 

Currently, stocks of the raw material is decreasing quickly whilst demand for masks is increasing dramatically.

Therefore, the Mongolian Agency for Standardization and Metrology quickly established a working group for approving national standards for recyclable textile masks. On 13 March, the agency approved a new standard (‘MNS 6828: 2020’) for recyclable textile masks.

As the mass media were not included in the list of permitted activities during the state of emergency in Kyrgyzstan, AKIpress apologizes to its readers for reduced promptness and coverage of news.
