Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) has the capability of producing large volumes of synthesis gas via inaccessible coal deposits. Syngas is an intermediate in the process of creating synthetic natural gas (SNG), which is an inherently costly synthesis process. The conversion of syngas to gasoline (STG) can be maximized in a one-step approach through the addition of a bifunctional transition metal zeolite catalyst. The resulting product stream contains readily available drop in liquid fuels at a competitive price.
