In this research, combustion performance and kinetics of two Turkish oil shales were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetry (TGA/DTG), and thermogravimetry–mass spectrophotometry (TG–MS) techniques at three different heating rates (10, 30, and 50°C/min). The combustion reaction occurred in two different regions and the corresponding mass loss of oil shales was calculated. Activation energies of oil shale samples are calculated using three different methods and the results are discussed from the viewpoint of the origin and grade of the samples.
