LINC CHARGED WITH DAMAGING ENVIRONMENT

LINC Energy Limited has been charged with causing serious environmental harm by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.

The charges follow a nine-month investigation into the energy company’s underground coal gasification (UCG) plant in Chinchilla.

“It involves converting coal to a synthesised, or non-natural, gas via enforced combustion.

Powell says the department spends more time on-site, to determine whether operators meet strict environmental requirements.

“The Queensland Government encourages emerging industries to develop, however they must comply with the state’s strong environmental laws.”
