The report describes the procedures for the detailed determination of the water consumed for mining and processing coal and oil shale, and for determining the residuals generated. The processes considered are Lurgi, Synthane, and Synthoil for coal conversion, TOSCO II for shale conversion, coal-fired steam electric power generation and slurry pipeline. In addition, determinations are also made of the water consumed for process cooling, flue gas desulfurization, revegetation of mined land, solids disposal and by evaporation and other uses within the mine-plant complex.
