The report presents an evaluation on pollution problems, abatement procedures and control techniques relevant to the petroleum and coal industries. Petroleum wastes are discussed under three broad sections: Drilling-production, Transportation and storage, and Refining. Within each section, petroleum wastes are identified as to their source, volume, and composition, and waste treatment methods are discussed. The results of a field study of three small refineries are also reported. Coal mining, coal processing, and coal utilization, the wastes associated with each, and the corresponding control measures are presented. Acid mine drainage, the most significant pollution problem from coal mining, and possible control measures are discussed. The major pollution problems associated with coal processing originate from coal cleaning, the coking process, and refuse disposal. The production of coke by carbonization of coal and its pollutants are reviewed.
