The Southern African Coal Processing Society (SACPS) was primarily responsible for supporting and promoting the congress locally, and almost all the South African delegates were SACPS members. The significance of the congress was illustrated by the fact that it was opened, in person, by Alexander Novak, Minister of Energy for the Russian Federation.

The university is located in an impressive neoclassical building designed by architect Andrey Voronikhin.
