This volume is the second of two Collaborative Papers which contain the technical papers presented at an IIASA Seminar under the generic title 'Coal: Issues for the Eighties' which was held in Szczyrk, Poland in November 1979. The seminar was jointly organized by IIASA and the Polish institutes collaborating in this study. The papers are here reproduced for the convenience of those attending the seminar and for reference by those involved in this continuing industry study. The first volume contains those papers concerning the organization, management and computer, and planning for planning issues, CP-80-23.

The primary objective of the seminar was to identify and define specific studies to be conducted as part of the Coal: Issues for the Eighties program. Seminar participants discussed papers on several coal related environmental issues, including papers on integration of regional environmental goals into coal production and utilization strategies, management of air pollutant effects resulting from coal use, strip mining impacts on ground water resources, environmental aspects of advanced coal utilization technologies, comprehensive coal/environment planning approaches in selected countries, and problems of environmental protection in the coal mining industry.

The topics "Evaluation of advanced coal utilization and conversion technologies, with an emphasis on environmental aspects and technology costs", and "Analyses of transboundary air pollution issues related to future coal developments" were subsequently recommended by seminar participants for further collaborative study at IIASA. These recommendations were based on the fact that joint efforts between IIASA and collaborating institutions on these two topics are interrelated, and thus would best be undertaken jointly.
