Gasification of Belarusian oil shales in a filtration-combustion wave
The regimes of gasification of Belarusian oil shales have been analyzed based on a generalized volume-averaged filtration-combustion model. The existence of three basic regimes — those of cocurrent and countercurrent filtration waves and of low-temperature volume pyrolysis — has been established. Data on the conditions of their existence have been obtained. The heat content of a producer gas in shale gasification in a stationary cocurrent filtration-combustion wave with air and oxygen-enriched blast has been evaluated.
