Green petroleum coke is generated by delayed coking during the conversion of crude oil into liquid fuels such as gasoline and jet fuels. It is a material with high fixed carbon content comprising hydrocarbons and low levels of inorganic compounds. Its appearance is that of a bulk composed of solid black fragments, and the term “green” in its name refers to the stage of its production process.
