Petrolcoke is a coke what derives from the final cracking process, that takes place in a unit called delayed coker unit. The chemical and physical characteristics of petrolcoke depend on the used crude oil composition and the refining process. Physically petrolcoke can resemble into large or smaller black pieces with a porous feel.
As its heating value is higher than coal’s, it can be used as a heating material in industrial environments. Fuel grade petrolcoke produces no visible ash when burned.
