Abstract

This paper describes the results of a study whose objective was to assess through carefully correlated retort and leaching experiments the effect of selected variables such as particle heat up rates, final retorting temperature, particle size, sweep gas type and flow rate, residual carbon content and internal pore properties on the leachability of metals from several Eastern U. S. Devonian oil shales. The effects of several solution and particle variables, such as leaching pH and particle size on metal leachability were established. Leachability of retorted shale from the Hytort (retorting under hydrogen atmosphere) process was also investigated.
