Recovery of tar: the coke oven gas coming out from ovens is passed through a tower where liquid ammonia is sprayed. The tar and dust are removed and then recovered.

Recover of NH3: the gases are then passed through a tower in which water is sprayed. It is removed as ammonia hydroxide.

Instead Of Water, If Sulphuric Acid Is Sprayed, It forms Ammonium Sulphate Which Can Be Recovered.

Recovery of Naphthalene:  after removal of nh3, the gases are passed through a cooling tower where water at low temperature is sprayed. Naphthalene and some condensed gases are recovered.

Recovery of benzene: it can be recovered by passing the gas through chamber where petroleum is sprayed.

Recovery of H2S :  the gas is passed through chamber containing moist Fe2O3, where it is recovered

                     Fe2O3 can be regenerated by treating Fe2S3 with air

The coal gas is recovered and collected in a gas holder after passing through various chambers to removed the by- products. The calorific value of the gas is 5000 kcal/m3.
