In order to determine whether or not conveying coal combustion byproducts (CCBs) was cost competitive with trucking, we developed a preliminary design and cost estimate for three overland conveyor systems. Working with Stantec, we found that conveyors were cost competitive with trucking. Given their minimal environmental and social impacts and cost efficacy, we recommended that conveyors be used for CCB transport.
