industrial engineering synthetic fuel program

Post by Gradstudent » 08 Feb 2014 08:35

Hello,

I am researching the German industrial engineering program of the production of synthetic fuel leading up to and throughout the war. I am focusing of the Fischer-Tropsch process that was invented by these scientists in approximately 1925 at Munich. I am looking for any information folks may have, illustrations, locations of plants, processes, feedstocks, pictures, patents.

Thank you,

Gradstudent

I would check out the book The Prize by Daniel Yergin.

There is a nice section on the German Oil Problem, including Synthetic Fuels. This is a GREAT Book on the history and use of oil, I would say a must read and gives much background info.
