The report gives results of an evaluation of the applicability of refinery control technologies to coal conversion. It is part of a comprehensive program for the environmental assessment of high-Btu gasification technology. Process/waste streams from coal gasification and liquefaction processes were characterized. Streams with refinery counterparts were identified. Toxicological and health effects data were also collected on waste stream constituents. Control technologies used in refineries to manage the identified streams were evaluated and their applicability to counterpart coal conversion streams was assessed. Study results indicate that, despite similarities between the refinery process/waste streams and their coal conversion counterparts, significant composition differences between the analogous streams would affect applicability and design of a control technology. Many refinery processes, which appear to have applicability to coal conversion process/waste streams, have not been tested for such applications. Additional testing would be necessary to generate data needed for a more accurate determination of their applicability.
