PRESENT AND FUTURE POSITION OF COAL IN STEEL TECHNOLOGY

The current and projected demand for steel, iron and energy, as well as the reserves and availability of coal in the United States and Canada are reviewed. The future position of coal in North America is investigated, this geographic area being characteristic where coal can be expected to exert a significant influence on future steel technology.
