FROM SHORE TO SHORE, THE EXPORT COAL FEVER SPREADS

The demand for export coal is producing either expansion or revival of certain U. S. ports' coal handling facilities and a planning of completely new ones elsewhere. The coal boom is marked by a demand for "steam" coal for electric power generation overseas; past demand was almost exclusively for "metallurgical"or coking coal. The article discusses factors such as ground storage for steam coal, car supply and utilization, financing, relations with inland waterway operations, environmental involvements and speculations on the ultimate size of the international coal market for U. S. and Canada.
