MAR1NELINE Fiberglass Balls to Float Cargoes By LOU JOBST taitr Crown-Zcllerbach Canada td., a lumber-newsprint firm rfth operations in Long each Harbor, is really "on ho ball." The Canadian firm Is C* perimentlng with a new transportation technique--floating ·foot fiberglass balls filled with paper pulp from logging ountry to manufacturing lants on the seacoast. In one run, a loaded ball floated 50 miles down the 'raser River, through the wiling Hell's Gate and was licked up above Vancouver. The balls weigh 200 pounds empty. They can carry about 250 cubic feet of wood pulp or chips each. "Ball transport" could ac commodate other types of cargoes. Crown - Zellerbach echnicians say, and could revolutionize fast water and nland stream transport. Research to find new cargo- ransporting techniques and equipment has produced some startling results such as a $50-million project by a Chi cago gas company. The Midwest company has 'ound a way to ship methane ·as, a vapor, by water trans' xrt. The researchers learned that methane, when chilled :o minus 258 d e g r e e s F freezes into a liquid thai takes up only one six-hurt' dredth as much space as methane in its gas form. They built a double-hulled ocean tanker equipped with aluminum storage tanks insu lated with balsa wood and encased in steel and hauled liquid gas from Louisiana to England. They were able to sell the liquid gas to the English for 70 cents less per 1,000 cubic feet than the Britons were paying for native coal gas. So delighted was the British government it gave permission to build $50 million In facili ties to handle liquid-gas shipments despite the opposition of the government-owned gas Industry. It Is expected that within three years 12 per cent o the British gas supplies wil )e frozen methane, snippet by freighter from French wells in the Sahara.
