Underground coal gasification (UCG) still bears the risk of groundwater contamination. Post-processing UCG water was decontaminated via the sorption technique from a variety of organic and inorganic contaminants. The activated carbons Supersorbon and Norit and the nanoiron Nanofer revealed the highest efficiency in laboratory as well as in pilot plant sorption experiments.
