Assessment Topic

The primary objective of this study has been to quantify the environmental atmospheric exposure of the general human population to coke-oven emissions of benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) and benzene soluble organics (BSO). Environmental emissions occur in the coking operation, during charging from leaks in the oven doors and the tops of ovens. from the waste gas stack, during pushing and quenching, and from by-product processing. In general, the measurement of environmental emissions from coke ovens has been limited to some atmospheric sampling of BaP for about one-third of the locations.
