Mobility of Cr and V in Spent Oil Shale: Impact of Thermal Treatment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Spent oil shale samples were evaluated for potential chromium and vanadium release upon aerobic combustion used in power generation, or anaerobic retorting used in shale oil recovery. Combusted samples released more Cr than retorted or raw samples due to chromate formation. The behavior of vanadium was just opposite in that more V was released from retorted than from aerobically combusted samples, probably due to reduced vanadyl cation formation.
