The report conveys EPA's understanding and perspective of oil shale development by providing (a) a summation of available information on oil shale resources, (b) a summary of major air, water, solid waste, health, and other environmental impacts, (c) a brief overview of applicable pollution control technology, (d) suggestions for the sampling, analysis, and monitoring of emissions, effluents, and solid wastes from oil shale processes, and (e) suggestions for interim objectives for emissions, effluents, and solid waste control. The report provides a brief summary discussion of the environmental problems of oil shale development. For the reader not acquainted with oil shale technology, it also provides a summation of the major retorting methods and their probable emissions, effluents, and solid wastes.
