High Sulfur Coal Exports

An International Analysis
Edited by: 
Michael Crow

The papers in this book were generated by the proceedings of the United States Senate Field Hearing and High Sulfur Coal Export Conference held June 8–9, 1981, at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The chair­man of the senate committee was Senator Charles Percy of Illinois.

One of the central concerns confronting the held hearing was “Factors Affecting the International Utilization of High Sulfur Coal.” More specifically, the committee ad­dressed itself to “developing international markets and marketing mechanisms for America’s coal, evaluating the domestic po­tential for American coal production and ex­ports, and Illinois coal’s potential as an emer­gency fuel in the event of an international energy shortfall.”

Coal experts from American industry, labor officials, state and national government leaders, and dignitaries from Europe and the Far East gathered to discuss this important global issue.
