This report provides guidance for evaluating the environmental impacts of proposed new source coal gasification facilities. Because EPA has not yet issued new source performance standards for the coal gasification industry, the guidelines are published in interim final form. The guidelines are intended to assist in the identification of potential environmental impacts, and the information requirements for evaluating such impacts, in documents prepared under the National Environmental Policy Act. The report includes guidance on (1) identification of potential wastewater effluents, air emissions and solid wastes from coal gasification facilities, (2) assessment of the impacts of such residuals on the quality of the environment, (3) state-of-the-art technology for in-process and end-of-process control of waste streams, (4) evaluation of alternatives, and (5) environmental regulations that apply to industry. In addition, the guidelines include an 'overview' chapter that gives a general description of the coal gasification industry, significant problems associated with it, and recent trends in location, raw materials, processes, pollution control, and the demand for industry output.
