With the anticipated increases in coal consumption in the next decade, greater demands will be made on existing transportation systems to move to market the abundant reserves of coal in the U.S. Conventional transportation modes such as rail and barge will have to expand their capabilities by overcoming whatever shortages may exist in manpower, capital, and hardware. Simultaneously, lesser known systems such as coal in water (slurry) pipelines will have to share the transportation load. With some half dozen coal slurry pipelines being considered for construction within the next five years pending eminent domain legislation, it will be a matter of time before these lines are built. A coal slurry pipeline system may impact the environment at three stages: design, construction, operation and maintenance; and in three areas: slurry preparation, slurry piping and slurry separation. This work has examined these environmental and pollution aspects of coal slurry pipelines. Such an effort will enhance the selection of better design, construction, and operation techniques to provide a balance of engineering, economics, and environmental considerations.
