Metallurgical coke is produced by destructive distillation of coal in coke ovens. Prepared coal is "coked", or heated in an oxygenfree atmosphere until all volatile components in the coal evaporate. The material remaining is called coke. Most metallurgical coke is used in iron and steel industry processes such as blast furnaces, sinter plants ...

Processes involving biomass oxidation are considered to be CO 2 neutral since the replenishing of the biomass by normal growth will remove CO 2 from the atmosphere. Thus the use of charcoal in the production of metallurgical coke, to be used as a reducing agent in the formation of iron, would be a strategy for the reduction of CO 2 in the overall ironmaking process.

Metallurgical coke or 'Met coke' or 'BF (blast furnace) coke' or simply 'coke in short' is a hard carbon material produced in the process of the 'destructive distillation' of various blends of bituminous coal. It is produced by carbonization of coal at high temperatures (1,100 deg C) in an oxygen deficient atmosphere in a coke oven.

Carbon (as coke or charcoal) is cheap. It not only acts as a reducing agent, but it also acts as the fuel to provide heat for the process. However, in some cases (for example with aluminum) the temperature needed for carbon reduction is too high to be economic so a different method has to be used. Carbon may also be left in the metal as an ...
