Abstract
The current study was focused on establishing the dynamics and extent of CO2 seasonal binding from the atmosphere by oil shale ashes formed in PF and CFBC boilers and stored in open-air deposits. The effect of different kinds of ashes as well as of transportation and deposition conditions, namely the effect of conventional hydro separation or dense slurry technology on the formation and properties of ash stone was estimated.
