The report summarizes an environmental data acquisition program involving a commercial-scale, medium-Btu, Lurgi gasification plant in the Kosovo region of Yugoslavia. The program is sponsored jointly by the U.S. EPA and the government of Yugoslavia. The objective of the program was to characterize potential environmental problems associated with coal gasification in a Lurgi plant. Since Lurgi plants are being planned for U.S. gasifiers, the program enabled the EPA to study firsthand the possible environmental problems which might be encountered. The Source Analysis Model/IA (SAM/IA) was applied to the best values of flow rates and concentrations of chemical species from all field tests to identify and prioritize potentially harmful discharges. The model was also applied to specific chemical species plantwide in the gaseous discharge streams. The primary conclusion of this environmental assessment model is that the process exhibits a significant potential for pollution. All discharge streams are potential vehicles for pollutant transfer from the process to the environment. The streams with the highest priority for control, based on their potential for adverse health effects in the three discharge media, are the H2S-rich waste gas, phenolic wastewater, and heavy tar (solid). When evaluated using SAM/IA, sulfur compounds posed the largest health problem from gases.
