Coke as a fuel
Coke is a frequently used fuel consisting mainly of carbon and is produced in special industrial plants, coking plants, usually from hard coal under high heat and oxygen exclusion. This process makes coke a low-gas fuel which, unlike hard coal, also has a low sulphur content. Coke must also be solid, lumpy and porous, especially for iron production.

Industrial usage of coke
Depending on the size of the coke, coke and coke breeze are used as fuel in blast furnaces and foundries or as small crushed coke for heating purposes. In the iron and steel industry, coke is used both as fuel and reducing agent. In contrast to hard coal, combustion releases less sulphur, soot and smoke, which would contaminate the iron. As a result of the global increase in steel, insulation and foundry production, the demand for coke continues to grow and many countries are already dependent on coke imports. This is exactly where we act as a diversified coke supplier.
