        In addition to coal hydrogenation, research was conducted on the synthesis of motor fuel from CO and H2.  The Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuel plant of the Mitsui Mining Co. has been partly completed with test runs under way, but none of the other Mitsui plants under construction will be ready for production before 1942.  The National Gas Institute of the Formosan Government-General has completed 2 pilot plants.  One will produce carbon black, the other H2-CO mixture for gasoline synthesis.  Synthetic MeOH is manufactured by 6 companies, with an aggregate capacity of 19,650 tons per-yr.
