Economic analysis of coal log pipeline transportation of coal
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This economic report is an update and a refinement of a 1993 study conducted by Liu, Zuniga and Richards that compared the cost of transporting coal from mines to power plants by coal log pipeline (CPL) with other modes of transportation including truck, rail and the coal slurry pipeline. The 1993 study revealed that under a rather wide range of conditions, CLP is the most economical mode for transporting coal from coal mines to power plants. Great savings can be accomplished by using CLP to transport coal in many situations.
