Welcome For Moratorium On Underground Coal Gasification

Friends of the Earth Scotland

SCOTLAND - Responding to the announcement of a Scottish Government moratorium on Underground Coal Gasification, Mary Church, Head of Campaigns at Friends of the Earth Scotland, said:

“Well done to Fergus Ewing for announcing this important new moratorium. Underground coal gasification is a risky and experimental technique, with a very chequered history around the world. This industry clearly deserves the same public scrutiny as shale gas fracking and coal bed methane.”
