Abstract

The relationship between the carbon dioxide content of carbonates in the bomb calorimeter combustion residues and that in the corresponding oil shale samples originated from different deposits was investigated. As a result, a criterion for applying a correction for undecomposed carbonates to gross calorific value was established. A suitable standard method for determination of gross calorific value of oil shale samples was also suggested.
