Scuba.

Your second link, is for a dryer for a web press, not a clothes dryer.

The other links on that page are mostly industrial also.

And the long term effects of lint inhalation are still unknown.. 2nd hand smoke is today's problem.. lint fibers in the lung is tomorrow's problem..

(he he he.. couldnt resist).

Home inspector: "no mold problem, but boy.. lots of dust bunnies.."

Maybe you oughta just vent your furnace stack into the home while your at it. Why not take the chance? It seems a shame you'd want to lose out on that lost heat source. BOTTOM LINE: DO NOT VENT A GAS DRYER INTO AN INTERIOR LIVING SPACE!!!
