The ASX-listed company said it had concluded testing for the export of electricity to Ergon Energy’s local grid within the current allowable limit of 1.5 megawatts.

Carbon is waiting on approval from the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management to ramp up export to 5MW.

“Today represents a further step in the process that has the capacity to deliver cheaper and greener energy to Queenslanders,” Carbon managing director Andrew Dash said.

“The company continues to take significant strides as a world leader in UCG technology development and expertise for delivering lower emissions energy from coal.”

He added that there was international interest for its UCG technology.

The UCG operation has now been producing syngas since project initiation in March last year.
