Petroleum coke is a byproduct of the Coker refinery with high calorific value and despite its higher sulfur content it has been widely used in the cement industry and power plants.
Coal is one of the world’s most important sources of energy, fuelling almost 40% of electricity worldwide. Coal has been the world’s fastest growing energy source in recent years – faster than gas, oil, nuclear, hydro and renewables.
