COAL TRANSPORTATION AND USE IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION
The purpose of the seminar was to examine the implications of future coal use and transportation in the Great Lakes region. About 80 transportation and energy experts participated. The seminar was divided into three sessions, which examined current and projected use in the region, transportation alternatives and effects and federal and state policy implications. After hearing brief presentations designed to provide an overview of the various subtopics, the participants questioned the speakers and commented on the presentations. The texts of the presentations were provided by the speakers, while the questions and comments were summarized and edited by GLBC staff.
