  • Underground Coal Gasification Poised to Grow Fivefold, Zeus Report Finds

    The potential energy supply from underground coal gasification (UCG) is so vast that the technology could rival the shale gas revolution, a Zeus Development Corp. study finds. Because UCG developers can target coals that are deep, of low grade and in seams too thin for economical mining, the technology could increase recoverable reserves threefold, a Lawrence Livermore National Lab report found ...


  • “Public Perception and Bureaucracy Slowing Gasification Uptake in UK” - Waste Management World

    Public perception of waste to energy facilities and confusion with incineration has been a major barrier to commercial uptake of gasification facilities being developed in the UK. This is in stark contrast to Germany, where such projects provoke little controversy. While plasma gasification seems to offer many advantages that would seem appealing to major waste management companies, getting a ...
