“Chemistry of oil shale waste management”

The QER New Fuels Development Centre and oil shale mine at Yarwun near Gladstone is dedicated to the creation of low sulphur oil from shale to produce diesel and jet fuels. The management of waste materials is an important priority in the production process, encompassing air, water, physical waste and noise. In this lesson, you will investigate the chemistry of waste management.

In this lesson, students will:

  • Discover twenty-four processes used for waste management.
  • Investigate physical changes and chemical reactions in waste management, with a particular focus on redox and acid-base reactions.

This lesson has been designed to align with the Queensland Chemistry syllabus for Year 11.
