[mathematical expression not reproducible] metric ton C[O.sub.2]/a (16115 long ton C[O.sub.2]/a)
So a UK ton, known as a long ton, is 2240lb, while a US ton, known as a short ton, is 2000lb.
If for example, DF is 150000, s is 35 kg C[O.sub.2]A (77.16 lb C[O.sub.2]/a), and CF is 0.85 (DOE, 1998), then: LSC = (150000 x 35 x 0.85)/1000 x 3.67 = 16377 metric ton C[O.sub.2](16115/a long ton C[O.sub.2]/a) Thereby, the total C[O.sub.2] emissions responsibility of the facility becomes:
During 2004, 42.8 long tons (43.5 million tonnes) of cargo moved on the Great Lakes.

Based on the assumption that iron ore prices ($76 per metric ton), steel prices ($694 per short ton), and pellet premiums ($67.50 per metric ton) will average for the remainder of 2019 their respective January averages, Cliffs would realize Mining and Pelletizing revenue rates in the range of $102 to $107 per long ton. Performing the same analysis using spot prices as of February 7, 2019, namely an iron ore price of $90.50 per metric ton, a steel price of $683 per short ton, and a pellet premium of $67.50 per metric ton, Cliffs would expect to realize Mining and Pelletizing revenue rates in the range of $111 to $116 per long ton for the full-year 2019.
Based on the assumption that iron ore prices, steel prices, and pellet premiums will average for the remainder of 2018 their respective year-to-date averages, Cliffs would realize USIO revenue rates in the range of $105 to $110 per long ton. This range remains consistent with the prior calculation as the year-to-date average increase in hot-rolled coil steel prices has been offset by higher freight rates.
Unit Equivalent in Mass 1 short ton (2,000 lb) = 0.907 184 7 1 long ton = 1.016 047 1 pound (lb) = 0.453 592 37 (a) 1 pound uranium oxide = 0.384 647 (b) (lb [U.sub.3][O.sub.8]) 1 ounce, avoirdupois = 28.349 52 (avdp oz) Volume 1 barrel of oil (bbl) = 0.158 987 3 1 cubic yard ([yd.sup.3]) = 0.764 555 1 cubic foot ([ft.sup.3]) = 0.028 316 85 1 U.S.
Cliffs would realize USIO revenue rates in the range of $105-$110 per long ton. This represents an increase from the prior calculation based on the increase in hot-rolled coil steel prices, partially offset by lower iron ore prices.
