FUEL ECONOMY OF FREIGHT PIPELINE FOR TRANSPORTING COAL

It has been found that the most immediate application of HCP is coal transportation. It appears that when the transportation distance is 20-200 miles, coal can be transported by HCP at a cost less than by truck, rail, and even the slurry pipeline. The purpose of this paper is to present the findings of a recently completed study of freight pipeline which assesses the pipeline's fuel-saving potential and its feasibility for coal transportation.
