Generic Name : Calcined Petroleum Coke
Product Name : Calcined Petroleum Coke / CPC / Recarburiser / Laddle additive / Carbon raiser 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, steel and 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. Petroleum coke, abbreviated coke or petcoke, is a final carbon-rich solid material that derives from oil refining, and is one type of the group of fuels referred to as cokes. Calcined petroleum coke uses
