904.    ----------------.  [FIELDNER, A. C.]  Use of Off-Peak Water-Gas Capacity for Methanol Production.  Am. Gas. Jour., vol. 126, 1927, pp. 179-181; Chem. Abs., vol. 21, 1927, p. 1699.

     An estimate based on data taken from a paper by G. Patart in the Proceedings of the International Conference on Bituminous Coal, 1926 (abs. 2589).  The cost of production of MeOH by a large plant in the United States would probably be only $0.30 per gal., but the situation with regard to the use of off-peak water gas is less favorable.
