Review of methods for assessing the carcinogenic hazards from coal-using energy technologies
This report contains material relevant to the development of methodologies for evaluating the cancer risks associated with atmospheric pollutants from coal combustion and conversion processes. Information is presented on methods and sources (1) of regression analyses in this field, and (2) of physically significant simulation mechanisms, including potential functional modules of such mechanisms, particularly those modules dealing with energy facility emission characterizations, atmospheric dispersion, aerochemistry, population exposure patterns, and carcinogenic dose-response studies. In addition to listings of several key references and bibliographies in these areas, there is a discussion of some of the research in progress, the urgency of the situation, and some of the barriers to the development and dissemination of timely results.
