UCG: Underground coal gasification

Underground coal gasification (UCG) is the process by which coal is converted to gas underground via enforced combustion.

UCTL is a process whereby coal is liquefied underground into a crude oil substitute at high temperature.

Doctors for the Environment Australia have put together this draft paper on on UCG/UCTL providing further information on these two techniques and their associated risks.
