ABSTRACT
The article provides an update on a potential new technology that can be used to process oil shale. Jim Barnes, project manager at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory, explains two approaches to the isolation of kerogen oil from oil shale and describes their limitations. He then discusses the features of a new technology being developed by Composite Technology Development in conjunction with the Department of Energy.

    Ultrasonic extraction of kerogen derived by acid treatment of Huadian oil shale is performed using an organic solvent. The most effective solvent is the 60:40 (wt%) mixture of chloroform and carbon disulfide, and the suitable mass ratio of the demineralized oil shale to solvent is 1:20. The oil...
