Abstract: A technology for processing the light fraction of high sulphur oil shale pyrolysis tar is suggested. The technology allows some industrial hydrocarbon solvents, chemical reagents and sulphur-organic products (for example, thiophene, methyl- and dimethilthiophenes), which are used in organic synthesis, to be obtained and the production of different medical preparations etc.
Keywords: Oil shale; sulphur content; processing; thiophene; hydrocarbon solvent; organic products.
