The report gives results of comparisons of process and waste stream characteristics from the Byproduct coke over process with selected gasification and liquefaction processes. It includes recommendations regarding control technologies for air, water, and solid wastes. Coke oven control technology was reviewed extensively. State and Federal regulations for the disposal and treatment of coke oven wastes are presented, along with a brief assessment of health effects attributed to coke oven emissions. Study results indicate that a number of coke oven control technologies are applicable to coal conversion systems, especially those dealing with desulfurization, fugitive emissions, byproduct recovery/upgrading, and wastewater treatment. Byproduct upgrading and fugitive emission control technologies may be readily transferable to analogous coal conversion applications. Desulfurization and wastewater treatment technologies, however, cannot be transferred readily to applications where significant differences exist in the composition, temperature, and pressure of the two categories of process/waste streams. In these cases, laboratory or pilot plant scale tests will be required with actual coal conversion wastes to determine the design bases and the treatability variations between coal conversion and comparable coke oven streams.
