CLAIMS

A method for obtaining combustible gases, wherein the method enables producing the combustible gases including a plurality of hydrocarbons in an aerobic condition, consisting essentially of the following steps:

- milling a component to obtain a milled component, wherein the component comprises at least one of the materials including shale rock, sub-bituminous coal, half -bituminous coal, bituminous shale, kerogenous shale, bituminous schist rock, marl, tar sand, oil sand, chitin, lignin, Sahara dust, and desert dust rock,

- reacting the milled component with an oxalic acid,

- obtaining the plurality of hydrocarbons including methane, ethane, propane, butane, pentane, hexane, and a plurality of iso forms thereof in an aerobic environment at the end of the reaction.

The method for obtaining combustible gases of Claim 1, wherein a pH value of the oxalic acid is below 2.

A method for producing energy, wherein a plurality of combustible gases are used in a heat cycle;

wherein the plurality of combustible gases including a plurality of hydrocarbons in an aerobic condition is produced by a method consisting essentially of the following steps:

- milling a component to obtain a milled component, wherein the component comprises at least one of the materials including shale rock, sub-bituminous coal, half-bituminous coal, bituminous shale, kerogenous shale, bituminous schist rock, marl, tar sand, oil sand, chitin, lignin, Sahara dust, and desert dust rock,

- reacting the milled component with an oxalic acid,

- obtaining the plurality of hydrocarbons including methane, ethane, propane, butane, pentane, hexane, and a plurality of iso forms thereof in an aerobic environment at the end of the reaction.

The method for producing energy of Claim 3, wherein the heat cycle is an external combustion heat cycle.

The method for producing energy of Claim 3, wherein the heat cycle is an internal combustion heat cycle.
