A survey by Mannesmann A.G. shows that there are 15 solids pipelines in the world of 125-400 mm dia, a combined length of 1000 km, and a combined capacity of 47 million tons/yr. Plans have been made for 14 more solids pipelines with a combined length of 6200 km and a total capacity of 43 million tons/yr, including a 1560 km coal pipeline from Utah to the West Coast, having an 8 million ton/yr capacity, and a 1400 km long line having a capacity of 2.3 million tons/yr of sulfur or 2.7 million tons/yr of coal. Bahke (Tech. Hochsch. Karlsruhe) estimates that the transportation costs for pipelining 2000-5000 ton/hr of solids can be as little as one-tenth the cost of shipping by water or rail.
