Mr Strongman had mentioned the existence of large deposits of ash, dust and pumice, which materials were presumably similar to fly ash, and had been mixed with lime with great success by the Romans! The possibilities of lime-ash stabilization of soils in East Africa would seem to be great and the speaker felt that lime could be imported at a lower cost than the Author quoted for the local product. Surely lime could, however, be produced on a large scale for much lower prices. Again could Mr Strongman elaborate on aniline-furfural stabilization in more detail?
