Steel Raw Materials
Coke is a fuel with few impurities and a high carbon content, usually made fromcoal. It is the solid carbonaceous material derived from destructive distillation of low-ash, low-sulfur bituminous coal. Cokes made from coal are grey, hard, and porous. While coke can be formed naturally, the commonly used form is man-made. The form known as petroleum coke, or pet coke, is derived from oil refinery coker units or other cracking processes.
Coke is used in preparation of producer gas which is a mixture of carbon monoxideand nitrogen. Producer gas is produced by passing air over red-hot coke. Coke is also used to manufacture water gas.
