The report is part of a comprehensive EPA program for the environmental assessment (EA) of high-Btu gasification technology. It summarizes and analyzes the existing data base for the EA of technology and identifies limitations of available data. Results of the data base analysis indicate that there currently are insufficient data for comprehensive EA. The data are limited since: (1) there are no integrated plants, (2) some of the pilot plant data are not applicable to commercial operations, (3) available pilot plant data are generally not very comprehensive in that not all streams and constituents/parameters of environmental interest are addressed, (4) there is a lack of experience with control processes/equipment in high-Btu gasification service, and (5) toxicological and ecological implications of constituents in high-Btu gasification waste streams are not established. A number of programs are currently underway or planned which should generate some of the needed data. The report consists of three volumes: Volume I summarizes and analyzes the data base.
