In this month’s issue of World Coal, the regional report focuses on North America, where Gordon Cope explains why the coal industry in the region must adapt if it is to survive the wave of recent environmental regulations that have been imposed, and Peter Davidson from the US Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office explains why the US Department of Energy is offering US$ 8 billion in loan guarantees for advanced fuel energy projects. The April issue features World Coal’s Coal Preparation Buyer’s Guide, in which we profile the major coal handling and preparation OEMs. We also feature articles on preparation plant engineering, utility vehicles, powertrains, dust control and maintenance & asset management. The Industry View from Dan Miklovic and Bas Mutsaers, Ventyx – an ABB Co., explains that, in order for the mining industry to develop solutions to some of the challenges it faces, industry professionals must begin to think in new and different ways.
