The report summarizes an ongoing test program involving a commercial medium-Btu Lurgi coal gasification plant in the Kosovo region of Yugoslavia. The environmental data acquisition program is sponsored by the U.S. EPA and the government of Yugoslavia. The objective of the program is to characterize potential environmental problems and control technology needs associated with the gasification of lignite coal in a state-of-the-art Lurgi gasification plant. This timely program is enabling the EPA to study firsthand the environmental problems which may be encountered by future operators of U.S. gasification plants. Phase I of the tests, now complete, concentrated on the characterization of major pollutants in the plant's gaseous emissions. Some characterization of the plant's liquid and solid waste streams and its by-products were also performed. A SAM/IA analysis of the gaseous emissions indicated that the major pollutants of concern are CO, benzene, H2S, mercaptans, and NH3. The Phenosolvan effluent contained a high concentration of organics and had a high (11-12) pH. The sulfur concentration of lights (i.e., gasoline) in the by-product streams was significantly higher than that of the heavies (i.e., tar). Phase II will emphasize detailed characterization of trace organics and trace elements in the plant's multimedia waste streams and control options.
