This presentation reports on the in-progress and planned environmental analyses of two DOE energy materials transport studies. The first project surveyed here is the joint Department of Energy/Department of Transportation study. This effort constitutes a follow through by these agencies on a request made by President Carter in his National Energy Plan, which predicted that the United States would have to greatly increase its use of coal and other sources of energy to offset expected oil shortages. The goal of this joint project is to look into potential capacity bottlenecks and other problems that may be encountered in transporting these fuels. The second study by Argonne National Laboratory has as its goals the development and implementation of strategies to conserve energy in the shipment of energy materials. (ERA citation 04:023439)
