The report gives results of a study to determine if more effective wastewater control technologies for by-product coke plant and blast furnace gas-cleaning wastewaters are used in foreign plants than in the U.S. Discussions were held with plant and corporate personnel at 26 plants in 14 countries and with regulatory agencies in 10 of the 14 countries to determine the regulations imposed on the plants, the incentives provided to reduce pollution loads to receiving waters, and the treatment technologies used. Research project recommendations are presented for promising wastewater treatment techniques.
