Experiments in Israel Laboratory May Result in Production of Raw Material for Plastics

The newspaper Davar disclosed today that considerable interest has been aroused in chemistry circles in Israel over experiments now progressing in a laboratory recently attached to the “Huliot” factory in Sde Nechemiah, in the Huleh Valley.

The laboratory, containing the latest equipment, has completed experiments for the production of methyl methcrylate with the aid of a recently-arrived immigrant chemist from the Netherlands. It is believed that the laboratory may soon enable the factory in the colony to produce raw material used in the manufacture of plastics, which was previously imported in large quantities from Britain and the U.S.
