Oil shale is a sedimentary, organic-rich rock that contains kerogen, a mixture of organic chemical compounds in solid form which releases hydrocarbons when heated. These hydrocarbons can be used as an alternative to conventional crude oil. Processing oil shale will ensure energy preservation and also generate employment avenues, therefore, contributing towards both economy and society. Oil shale is mainly utilized as a fuel in thermal power plants to drive steam turbines and making a variety of materials such as glass, carbon fibers, fertilizers, tanning agent and carbon black among others.
The global oil shale market was USD 1805.47 million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD 4224.13 million by 2025 at a CAGR of 12.91% during the forecast period
