2904.     ---------------.  [ROSENTHAL, H.]  [What Can the Gas Industry Contribute to the Four-Year Plan?]  Gas-u. Wasserfach, vol. 80, 1937, pp. 103-106.

        Discussion of the economic possibilities of utilizing the excess production capacity of German gas plants for the manufacture of liquid fuels by the Fischer-Tropsch process.  It is calculated that the 80 largest gas plants, which ordinarily produce 90% of the fuel gas requirements, could gasify an extra 6,000,000 tons of coal and could thus supply the raw material for 1,000,000 tons of liquid fuel.  The cost would be high until the Fischer-Tropsch installations could be written off in about 3 years, when the cost would then compete fairly well with world markets.
