ECONOMICS OF SLURRY PIPELINE SYSTEMS

The economics of transportation of solids in slurry pipeline systems is presented, including the impact of cost escalation on this transportation mode. Costs of alternate forms of transportation are discussed. The physical dimensions and experience with existing commercial systems are reviewed, and the environmental impacts and energy requirements of commercial slurry pipeline transportation systems are described.
