Title

Pyrolysis Kinetics of Various Australian Oil Shales in Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide Atmospheres

Abstract

The kinetics of oil generation from retorting of various Australian shales have been investigated under both nitrogen and carbon dioxide sweep gas conditions. Experiments were conducted both isothermally and nonisothermally with linear temperature control, in a unique fixed bed retorting system. The kinetics of these shales were directly compared with those of eastern and western U. S. shales, previously studied.
