Linc Energy uses UCG Technology to Generate a Clean Natural Gas
Brisbane, QLD, Australia (WebWire) July 2009 – Linc Energy is excited to announce that it has successfully developed its Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) technology to provide consumers with a clean, environmentally friendly, non-petroleum based fuel source. UCG produces a non-polluting, non-toxic liquid fuel by converting coal into gas and then into a liquid. Often referred to as syngas, UCG generates a clean burning synthetic gas. Linc Energy believes its UCG technology is the answer to rising petroleum costs and rapidly depleting oil reserves.
The concept of taking coal and turning it into a clean fuel source isn’t new. In fact, in the 1800s cities often burned coal in large ovens to provide the energy necessary to illuminate both streetlights and residential lamps. In the 1970s the U.S. government supported research that examined methods for turning coal into gas and liquid fuel. Once the crisis was over however; the research was abandoned.
Interest in UCG technology has as grown in recent years as concerns for the environment have deepened, causing many to search for alternative and “green” energy sources. The rising cost of petroleum and the depleting oil reserves have also played a part in the renewed interest in UCG technology. This is good news for companies like Linc Energy, who are committed to providing an alternative energy source through responsible stewardship of the Earth’s resources.
Coal rests just under the surface of the Earth and is both affordable and abundantly available. A common misconception is that coal is a dirty energy source that is in part due to memories of the large coal-burning ovens spewing black smoke in large cities some two centuries ago. Linc Energy’s UCG technology has changed all that. What once was done above ground is now done underground in an environmentally sound way. UCG goes underground to turn the solid coal into a synthetic gas. This syngas is then converted into a clean burning liquid fuel.
Linc Energy is committed to turning the earth’s plentiful coal resources into an environmentally friendly, clean burning, and alternative fuel source through UCG technology. Linc Energy seeks to provide a sustainable solution to the world’s rapidly depleting oil reserves. To learn more about UCG visit http://www.lincenergy.us/ today.
