Marketable coke is coke that is relatively pure carbon and can be sold for use as fuel (i.e. fuel grade coke), or for the manufacture of dry cells, electrodes, etc. (i.e., anode grade coke).
Fuel Grade Coke is classified as either sponge coke or shot coke morphology. Its high heat and low ash content make it a good fuel for power generation in coal fired boilers, but petroleum coke is high in sulfur and low in volatile content which pose some environmental and technical problems with its combustion.
Calcined petroleum coke (CPC) is the product from calcining petroleum coke. This coke is the product of the coker unit in a crude oil refinery. The calcined petroleum coke is used to make anodes for the aluminium, steeland titanium smelting industry. The green coke must have sufficiently low metals content in order to be used as anode material. Green coke with this low metals content is referred to as anode grade coke. The green coke with too high metals content will not be calcined and is used for burning. This green coke is called fuel grade coke.
Approximately 23 percent of worldwide petroleum coke production is marked for calcined petroleum coke.
While the aluminum industry consumes the bulk of calcined petroleum coke, the remaining 25 percent is used in such applications as providing a carbon source in the production of titanium dioxide, steel, and certain chemical processes.
Calcined coke, for example, plays a critical role in creating the graphitized electrodes needed for electric arc steel furnaces.
