The environmental impacts of increased coal utilization are primarily the result of the emission of air pollutants arising from combustion processes, coal gasification, or liquefaction plants. These pollutants may be distributed over a relatively large area, whose extent depends on the design and mode of operation of the combustion or. The two volumes of this report plus the Standards of Practice Manual for the Solvent Refined Coal Liquefaction Process (EPA/) represent the cur- rent data base for the environmental assessment of coal liquefaction technology. In general, liquefaction operations begin with pre- treatment of the feed. EPA/b September Environmental Assessment Data Base for Coal Liquefaction Technology: Volume II.

A number of different coal liquefaction processes have been described in Chapter are discussed here: the Synthoil liquefaction process and the Solvent Refined Coal process.

The DOE Coal Liquefaction Research Needs (COLIRN) Panel reviewed, developed, and assessed R and D needs for the development of coal liquefaction for the production of transportation fuels. Technical, economics, and environmental considerations were important components of the panel's deliberations.

State of the Art and Practice in the Assessment of Earthquake-Induced Soil Liquefaction and Its Consequences evaluates these various methods, focusing on those developed within the past 20 years, and recommends strategies to minimize uncertainties in the short term and to develop improved methods to assess liquefaction and its consequences in. Liquefaction can be direct, from the coal itself, or indirect, from synthesis gas (CO and H2) obtained by gasification of the coal. Coal liquefaction incorporates both an increase in . Coal pollution mitigation, often called clean coal, is a series of systems and technologies that seek to mitigate the pollution and other environmental effects normally associated with the burning (though not the mining or processing) of coal, which is widely regarded as the dirtiest of the common fuels for industrial processes and power generation. The book contains a critical analysis of today's synthetic fuels option from the point of view of both user and producer. The principles of coal conversion and the history of synthetic fuel production are reviewed. Specific fuel types (low, medium, and high Btu gases, heavy and light liquids) and such synthetic fuels as petrochemical feedstocks are considered. Economic and .
