Effect of Heating Rate on Pyrolysis Kinetics of Göynük Oil Shale
Pyrolysis kinetics of the Göynük oil shale was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis in the present study. All experiments were conducted at nonisothermal conditions with a heating rate of 5–90 K/min in the 298–1173 K pyrolysis temperature interval under argon atmosphere. Differential thermogravimetric data were analyzed by a reaction rate model assuming first-order kinetics. Minimum activation energy was obtained as 3.0 kJ/mol at the heating rate value of 20 K/min. It appears to be the lowest one when compared to those in the literature.
