Does UCG have a future in India-I: Good potential exists
Nov 24: In today's volatile world, is there a scope for launching large-scale Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) in commercial scale in India?
8India no doubt has the resources as UCG guarantees resource recovery, even from very poor quality coal, of which India has abundant reserves. The wells are the size of bore wells and are sealed and cemented post-use. There is minimal damage to the surface, which can be restored to its original state.
8The cavity can be used later for storage of CO2 for sequestration purposes.
8Potential threats from UCG include leakage of gases into aquifers, loss of energy, sinkhole formation and ground subsidence.
8All these are manageable when there is a proper selection of sites.
