The development and analysis of data from a preliminary study of coal conversion industrial pilot facilities is discussed. The NIOSH study program is reviewed and the objectives of industrial hygiene characterization projects are listed. Different categories of toxic compounds generated by coal conversion facilities and the walk through survey methodology used to identify these compounds are described. The objectives and approaches involved in the control technology assessment program for coal gasification and liquefaction are considered. The authors suggest that the preliminary study of industrial hygiene hazards associated with coal conversion will enhance the understanding of potential occupational health problems and permit the design of industrial facilities that will produce lower emissions.
