Petroleum coke which is also known as pet coke is a safe and economical alternative fuel which is produced in various grades based upon a couple of factors namely the cooking time, the material’s efficiency and also the time used for cooking. A key reason why pet coke has created a niche in the fuel industry is because it has cut down the dependency of coal and oil for power generation. It is the fuel-grade pet coke that is used increasingly as a substitute to coal. It has immensely high heating value that enables its application in different material processing industries. Fuel-grade pet coke when burned produces minimal or no ash which is a highly favorable fuel characteristic in case of a couple of industries chiefly power generation plants and cement manufacturing kilns. Pet coke is available in different varieties namely shot coke, catalyst coke, purge coke, needle coke and sponge coke. These are distinguished based on its VOC (volatile organic content) and also its psychical properties. Pet coke has various niche applications including feed stock in coke oven batteries, production of urea and ammonium nitrate and titanium dioxide.

There are many factors that is driving the growth of the pet coke market.
