Petroleum Coke (Pet Coke) which is the carbonaceous solid residue remaining after the distillation of petroleum materials. Pet coke has more than twice the calorific value comparing with traditional steam coal; it can reach 7500-8500 KCal/kg.
This coke can either be fuel grade (high in sulfur and metals) or anode grade (low in sulfur and metals).
- Alternative to coal in power plants
- Fuel in cement kilns
- Aluminium plants
- CPC production
- In blast furnaces
- Chemical and steel industries etc.
