This volume is the product of an information-gathering effort relating to coal conversion process streams. Available and developing control technology has been evaluated in view of the requirements of present and proposed federal, state, regional, and international environmental standards. The study indicates that it appears possible to evolve technology to reduce each component of each process stream to an environmentally acceptable level. It also indicates that such an approach would be costly and difficult to execute. Because all coal conversion processes are net users of water, liquid effluents need be treated only for recycling within the process, thus achieving essentially zero discharge. With available technology, gaseous emissions can be controlled to meet present environmental standards, particulates can be controlled or eliminated, and disposal of solid wastes can be managed to avoid deleterious environmental effects. This volume (I) focuses on environmental regulations for gaseous, liquid, and solid wastes, and the control technology for liquid effluents.
