Description

A multiperiod mixed integer linear programming model is proposed as a guide to the urgent expansion of the production and interregional distribution of American coal. The model, run under various scenarios of resource costs and governmental restrictions, should serve as an indicator of the possible performance of the industry, a guide to effective legislation, and a program for optimal location and timing of mines and conversion and transportation facilities.
