leave a comment »

The U.S. Synthetic Liquid Fuels Act of 1944 (30 USC Secs. 321 to 325)

authorized $30 million over five years for “the construction and operation of

demonstration plants to produce synthetic liquid fuels from coal, oil shales,

agricultural and forestry products, and other substances, in order to aid the

prosecution of the war, to conserve and increase the oil resources of the Nation, and

for other purposes.” The act also authorized the Interior Secretary to construct,

maintain, and operate plants producing synthetic liquid fuel from coal, oil shale, and

agricultural and forestry products. The Bureau of Mines received $87.6 million for

an 11-year demonstration plant program.
