Petcoke.jpg

Petroleum coke (pet coke) is a solid by-product that occurs during the refining process of crude oil. Petkok is used as a low-calorie fuel. Petcoke is known for its high carbon and low ash content and has a higher calorific value than coal. Petkok is a by-product of the refining process and is often used as a substitute for coal used in blast furnaces or steel mills. Petkok is the lowest calorie fuel type among petroleum products left after refining. Thanks to its high calorific value, petcoke is used as a fuel in industrial processes. Petkok is also used in the metallurgical, chemical and cement industries. In these industries, petcoke is considered an ideal fuel due to its high calorific value and low ash content. Petkok is also used as a component of materials inside blast furnaces, which are also used in steelmaking. Petkok is also used in the production of aluminum. The anodes required for aluminum production are made from a mixture of petcoke and some other materials. Petkok is an ideal material for burning anodes, thanks to its high calorific value. Petkok is a by-product of industry and is still used in many industries due to its low cost.
