2480.     NOTON, C. H.  Synthetic Fuel From Peat.  Ind. chemist, vol. 17, 1941, pp. 304-306; British Chem. Abs., 1942, B, p. 70.

        Peat is completely gasified in a Pintsch-Hillebrand plant to yield a synthesis gas with the proper ratio of CO:H2=1:2 at a gas-making efficiency of over 69%.  The necessary heat for operating the regenerator (95 B.t.u.) is supplied 45 B.t.u. by the waste gas from the Fischer-Tropsch plant and 50 B.t.u. by burning peat.  The cost, with peat at RM7/ton, is RM 0.34 per 1,000 cu. ft. of synthesis gas.
