Abstract
Occupational health problems associated with the coal conversion process were evaluated based on a coal gasification model. The five unit operations of coal preparation, injection, gasification, quenching, and methanation were considered, together with their respective exposure hazards, such as exposure to noise and excessive concentrations of coal dust. NIOSH involvement in the development and testing of three pilot facilities is discussed, and the proposed evaluation of a demonstration facility is described. The author mentions a general lack of attention to the potential health effects of synthetic fuel production and advises that careful consideration be given to these problems to avoid future health tragedies.
