ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF COAL TRANSPORTATION AND STORAGE
This article deals with the subjects of coal transport and storage which have recently become active areas of concern for the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Projects in these fields have been supported by EPA and the Extraction Technology Branch (ETB) for approximately two years. The energy/environmental studies now conducted by the Industrial Research Laboratory, Cincinnati, Ohio, include eastern underground coal mines, eastern surface coal mines, western coal mines, treatment of mine drainage, oil shale extraction, uranium mines, and transportation of solid fuels.
