The report gives Phase I results of (1) an assessment of the environmental impact of wastewaters originating from the production of synthetic fuels from coal, and (2) an evaluation of alternative technologies for treating these wastewaters. Work on coagulation, adsorption, and preliminary biological treatment studies is continuing. The major focus is on aerobic biological treatment which is projected to be the principal means of removing organic impurities from these wastewaters and a cornerstone of any overall wastewater treatment program. A synthetic wastewater, designed to simulate a real conversion process wastewater, was fed to a series of aerobic biological reactors. Design and operation of the reactors is described, along with performance data spanning two 6-month operating periods.
