The report gives results of the first year's work on an environmental assessment of coal cleaning processes. A short base of engineering, ecological, pollution control, and cost data is being established through data gathering and systems analysis efforts. In addition to program management, three task areas are defined: system studies, data acquisition, and general program support. Early availability is anticipated for draft reports of progress for three subtasks: (a) developing information on coal cleaning process technology; (b) defining the technological and cost status of the control of pollutants from coal cleaning and refusal disposal; and (c) establishing criteria for meeting environmental goals. (A fourth subtask, acquiring process data, was terminated to avoid duplication.) Progress has been made on data acquisition subtasks, aimed at the planning needed as the forerunner of the anticipated environmental field testing program: (a) developing and describing the overall environmental test program; (b) developing the rationale for selection and selecting the evaluation sites; (c) specifying the experimental testing techniques to be used; and (d) developing the master site test plan. (Ten site categories have been specified for testing.) General program support includes: (a) obtaining background environmental data, and (b) operating a coal cleaning information center.
