Thermogravimetric Analysis of Oil Shale Samples

Project:  Thermogravimetric Analysis of Oil Shale Samples

Region:  Australia

Development work has been carried out in determining mineral and organic contents of oil shale samples. Thermogravimetric analysis was undertaken and clearly indicated the amount of organic material and a good indication of the other inorganic minerals present. Preliminary investigation were carried out for potentially developing a self-firing cement product which could be an interesting market for the low organic grade deposits.
