Abstract
The prevention of hazardous occupational emissions during coal gasification and liquefaction was discussed. Emission sources, contamination of the workplace, and points of contact with employees were described with pertinent control measures. Besides inhalation, the risk of chemical and thermal burns was noted. Cancer, respiratory, and nervous disease due to chemicals commonly found during coal gasification and liquefaction processes, such as polynuclear aromatics (PNA), carbon-monoxide (630080), hydrogen- sulfide (7783064), aromatic-amines, benzene (71432), toluene (108883), and xylene (1330207) were reviewed. The authors conclude that information on control technologies in the U.S.A. and abroad should be distributed to coal conversion factory designers. They recommend that hazardous processes, equipment and materials should be eliminated or kept sealed, and that better ventilation, construction materials, and monitoring systems should be implemented.
