Discovery by EnQlleh Scientist That
Is of Monetary at Well as
Tho extraction of alcohol from coke
oven gns on a commercial scale wns
proved poHNlblo at a meeting of thu
Cleveland lustltutu of ICugiueer nt
Middlesbrough (lluglaud) by truest
llury of thu Kkluulugrnvo Iron nnd
.Steel works. Mr. llury showed that
ho had succeeded In extracting el by I
alcohol nnd Its derivatives. Tho prac
tical' working of Mr. llury's procesi
nt tho .Skluiilugrovu plant, where f'.SOO
tons of coal nro carbonlxed per Meek,
revealed an average yield of 1.0 gal
lons of alcohol per ton of coal car
houlxcd. Tho total weight of coal re
duced to coko In tho I'liltcd Kingdom
In 1018 having been M.a'tt.OOO tons,
tho application of Mr. llury's procesx
to tho entire iimouut of coal would
yield '.'lU UI.OOO gallons, tho vnluo of
which would bo $ I !,:: .000. The re-
covin y of alcohol at the gas works of
tho country would yield a further 7,
000.000 gallons, or, alcohol anil heiixol
taken together, would amount to 111,
000.000 to meet Hid requirement of
the country, which niiiomiu to 100,
000,000 per unuum.
