Solid Fuel Chemistry Aims and scope Submit manuscript


The net calorific values of oil shale, tar oil, bitumen, and their mixtures were measured in a calorimetric bomb. It was found that mixtures of oil shale with tar oil (or bitumen) and coke exhibited the greatest net calorific values. A decrease in the ash content of these mixtures was found. The use of mixture components and ash residues as fuel and building material components, respectively, was proposed.
