Scotch machine, Washington, D.C., September 8. This machine, exhibited at the World Power Conference which is being held here, is devised so as to use every inch of matter contained in coal. The coal is put in the rettort and heated to a temperature of 1832 degrees. From the smoke and gas, Tar, Ammonium Sulphite, sulphur, light oils and gas are derived and from the tar, medicines, aromatic oils, perfumes, dyes, and acids are derived. From the light oils, motor fuel is obtained. In short: this machine wastes nothing at all
