THE COAL FUTURE: ECONOMIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF INITIATIVES AND INNOVATIONS TO SECURE FUEL SUPPLY INDEPENDENCE
Nuclear power costs are reevaluated to determine the ceiling price for coal. Low sulfur coal reserves are reestimated on a consumer rather than on an as mined basis. Coal reserve/resource estimating procedures are analyzed for their policy content. Comparative cost estimates are developed for unit trains, slurry pipelines and high pressure pneumatic pipelines. Low Btu coal gasification and stack gas scrubbing are compared for SO2 removal. An analysis of medium Btu coal gasification to increase coal markets is made.
