Conference Papers On Coal-Fired Ships Available From Polytech

"It may be said that a favorable economic argument for using coal as a ship's fuel can be demonstrated today in a number of bulk-carrying trades. R e a l i s t ic predictions of future price trends in energy supplies suggest that the argument is likely to become even stronger in the 10-15 years that lie ahead. In this regard, we should not overlook the active development work now being undertaken in the field of more highly efficient (coal-burning) steamg e n e r a t i n g plants." The above quotation summarizes the concensus of opinion of the recent Second International Coal Fired Ships Conference held recently in New York City.

The conference was sponsored by Shipping World & Shipbuilder and Polytech International and organized by Conference Organisers I n t e r n a t i o n a l Limited.

Twelve economic and technical papers, prepared by U.S. and foreign experts on shipping and machinery, were presented during the two-day conference.

Copies of the papers may be obtained from Polytech International, Cardigan House, 1 Cardigan Street, Luton LU1 1RP, England at a price of $63.
