||Report of investigations into the measurement of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and bezene, toluene and xylene (BTX) in and around coke workers. PAH emission from 7 sources on a coking plant were documented and on old coke oven batteries the 2 major sources were shown to be the coke oven door and the charge hole lids; the level of emissions from modern plants with self-sealing doors was significantly lower than from older plants. The highest concentrations of BTX were found on the by-product plant, although the highest yields in terms of weight per tonne of coke produced were associated with the battery. Details are given of the sampling and analysis methods used.
