The quality and cost of coke plays a vital role in maximizing the productivity of blast furnace process and reducing the cost of hot metal. The quality of coking coals and their blends mainly determines the quality of coke.

With the advent of highly productive blast furnaces, together with the needs of cost reduction in all the spheres, coal beneficiation, coal blend preparation and coke manufacturer have been attracting the attention of the coke oven operators, technologists, designers and researchers worldwide.

Despite economic setbacks, in India steel production will certainly grow in the long term, and demand for coking coals will continue to increase. Steelmakers should make efforts towards structural adjustment and resource integration with a view to upgrading the competitiveness for the next round of market upturn. Technology development and research efforts should always continue.

This book covers a wide spectrum of topics, including coal characteristics and BF operation, advanced technologies and equipment, coking coals: quality, availability and beneficiation, optimization of coal blends for coke making, coke quality, and improvement in battery operation. This will serve as a useful reference material for coal, coke oven specialists all over the world.

Target audience:

People interested in materials science, mining, steel production companies.
