What is Syngas?
Synthesis gas, or Syngas, occurs during the conversion of coal to gas through a series of controlled reactions involving heat, pressure, oxygen, coal and water. This conversion is called gasification.
Coal gasification is not new. It has been used since the 1800s to supply heating gas to cities and towns, generate electricity from gas turbine power stations and to produce synthetic liquid fuels.
Located in the menu to the right are video's and links detailing the many benfits of Syngas as well as the vast difference between UCG and CSG.
Did you know?
- UCG means coal is accessed underground, without the need for a surface mine.
- New technology, such as directional drilling, and demand for energy, are driving expansion in the Syngas industry.
