Technology

We are a coal mining company with an eye on the future, combining cutting edge technologies with a diverse mix of coal products from open cut and underground mine operations.

Yancoal continues to leverage its strong technology base by actively developing new underground mines and encouraging other Australian coal operations to introduce the Longwall Top Coal Caving underground mining technology.

Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) technology

LTCC allows the excavation of thick coal seams of 5 to 12 metres at one pass of the longwall machine, generating high productivity and economic returns for an operation.

Ultra Clean Coal (UCC) technology

Ultra Clean Coal (UCC) patented technology produces a high purity, chemically cleaned coal that can be used as a highly efficient fuel for generating electricity with less CO2 emissions than conventional coal power generation.
