Excerpt from Report of the Fuel Research Board for the Years 1922 1923 First Section The Production of Air Dried PeatThe use of peat as a domestic fuel is of very ancient origin and is probably coeval with that of coal Notwithstanding the long period over which peat fuel has been Used progress in its preparation and utilization has been slow and in many countries its production is still dependent upon the laborious hand winning methods which with the exception of minor differences are the same in all countriesDuring the past century many attempts have been made Chiefly In Germany To in Germany to Mechanical Methods To The #mechanical methods to the and spreading of the peat While the use of elevators and mace rators has led to the production of a denser and tougher fuel the output of such plants is small and the number Of worker.
