An Australian company was also working on an underground gasification
project and lawyers cannot judge this project.'
"The council's administration have stated in their priorities and commitments that they are opposed to fracking and underground gasification
Over 85 percent of lignite production is consumed by the electric power sector, some after being processed by underground gasification
. Bituminous output remains on a very small scale (around 70 000 t/year).
Some current owners are trying to impose surface mining or underground gasification
on North East populations, in spite of the UK's obligations to "decarbonise" energy as soon as possible.
The ban will also apply to the in situ underground gasification
of oil shale.
Urgency in tapping local, sustainable and affordable power sources is manifested by Underground Gasification
Project, planned by nuclear scientist Dr Samar Mubarakmand.
We also still have a vast amount of coal underground that needs to better utilised through investment in underground gasification
and carbon capture and storage.
"First world countries would never give their first grade technology to us, and rather they would exploit our resources through it," said Dr Samar while addressing a special lecture on "Power generation through underground gasification
of Thar coal and Pakistan nuclear deterrence" at the Physics Department of Government College University, Lahore.
Renowned scientist Dr Samar Mubarakmand is supervising coal mining underground gasification
programme where work was in progress in four blocks of underground gasification
| ISLAMABAD, Oct 30 (KUNA) -- Pakistan's first gasification plant will start generating low cost electricity from next year, said the head of the Thar Coal Underground Gasification
Samar said that through underground gasification
technology, electricity can be generated at Rs3 to 4 per unit while diesel can be produced at $40 per barrel.
He said that since it is very difficult to mine at Thar coal field, it is easy to produce gas from underground gasification
technology which is totally designed by us.
