The charcoal industry in the Netherlands East Indies would be most successful if there was a ready market for the charcoal, as for tin-smelting or blast furnaces. The sale of other products such as acetic acid for coagulation of latex could help to promote the industry. Decline of the United States charcoal industry by competition with synthetic methanol might improve the market in countries where methanol was not a principal product. In the Netherlands East Indies the sale of acetic acid, wood tar and charcoal seemed secure for the charcoal industry and perhaps there was scope for export.
