The report gives results of a review of the FMC Corporation's COED coal conversion process, from the standpoint of its potential for affecting the environment. It includes estimates of the quantities of solid, liquid, and gaseous effluents, where possible, as well as the thermal efficiency of the process. It proposes a number of possible process modifications or alternatives, and points out new technology needs, aimed at lessening adverse environmental impact.
