Biological effects of raw and processed oil shale particles in the lungs of laboratory animals.

Holland LM, Smith DM, Thomas RG - Environ. Health Perspect. (1979)

Bottom Line: Environmental and occupational health concerns will have an effect on the developing oil shale technologies.Animal studies dealing with the effects of oil shale-related materials in the lung are in progress.Experiments involving Syrian hamsters exposed by inhalation and by intratracheal instillation are described.

ABSTRACT
Environmental and occupational health concerns will have an effect on the developing oil shale technologies. The mining and crushing of large volumes of rock will be a characteristic of at least some of these technologies, and above ground disposal of proceessed shale will require adequate control measures. Exposure by inhalation to the dusts that may arise from shale oil technologies may present a hazard both in the work force and in the local population. Animal studies dealing with the effects of oil shale-related materials in the lung are in progress. Experiments involving Syrian hamsters exposed by inhalation and by intratracheal instillation are described.
