This paper describes a portion of a comprehensive, long term EPA program to evaluate the environmental effects of energy systems that produce gaseous and liquid fuels from coal. The technologies being assessed include low-, medium-, and high-Btu gasification and liquefaction. One part of the program for which EPA/IERL-RTP is primarily responsible is the environmental evaluation of the processes and their discharges considering all media. The status of this program and preliminary results are presented.
