 1567.    ---------------.  [INSTITUTE OF GAS TECHNOLOGY.]  Utilization of Off-Peak Gas Capacity. Rept. for Tech. Sec., Postwar Planning Cooperating Com., August 1945, pp. 35-47.

       Discusses the possibilities of utilizing spare water-gas equipment for producing synthesis gas for making synthetic MeOH or synthetic gasoline by the Fischer-Tropsch process.  The conclusion is that the utilization of spare water-gas capacity during off-peak periods for the above purpose is not economically feasible.  It is proposed, however, that the feasibility of producing lamp black or carbon black be investigated, as this proposition is economically possible.
