Oil shales land use

ABSTRACTThe emergent patterns of land change resulting from the development of shale oil and gas infrastructure is a result of Journal of Land Use Science. The national plan is an important strategic development document, which directs the state's land use at a general level. 15. “Ida-Viru Action Plan 2015–2020”19 is

Environmental impact of the oil shale industry includes the consideration of issues such as land use, waste management, and water and air pollution caused by the extraction and processing of oil shale. Surface mining of oil shale deposits causes the usual environmental impacts of open-pit mining. In addition, the combustion and thermal processing generate waste material, which must be disposed of, and harmful atmospheric emissions, including carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas. Experimental i Oil shale is the rock from which shale oil is extract ed. Shale oil is similar to petroleum, and can be refined into many different substances, including diesel fuel, gasoline, and liquid petroleum gas ( LPG ). Companies can also refine shale oil to produce other commercial products, such as ammonia and sulfur.

Oil shales have also been used for oil production since 1916 in other areas of the former USSR (the world's biggest producer of conventional oil for the last few years), and since 1909 in Manchuria which has the biggest commercial oil shale industry in operation today, yielding about 40,000 barrels of oil per day.
