Petroleum coke, also known as pet coke, refers to a solid carbon byproduct of the oil refining process comprising elemental forms of sulfur, metals, and non-volatile inorganic compounds. It is highly stable and non-reactive under ambient conditions, does not dissolve in water, and has high calorific power and low ash content compared to conventionally used fossil fuels. As a result, it is widely used as a major fuel source over coal in power plants and electrical, magnesite, ceramic, and cement factories around the world.
Petroleum Coke Market Trends:
Increasing construction activities inthe residential, commercial, and industrial complexes represent one of the major factors positively influencing the demand for petroleum coke around the world. In addition, the rising consumption of electricity worldwide is catalyzing the need for petroleum coke to reduce the instances of power failures. Moreover, due to the growing environmental concerns, several initiatives are being undertaken by governments of numerous countries to promote the adoption of green fuels and minimize carbon footprints. This is providing lucrative growth opportunities to manufacturers operating in the industry. Apart from this, the risingfocus on enhancing crop protection is catalyzingthe use of petroleum coke in the agriculture industry to produce ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate, which is further used in the production of fertilizers. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of petroleum coke as a substitute for lead in paintsand as a pigment in sunscreens, plastics, and food colorings is contributing to the market growth. In addition, the development of eco-friendly pet coke with low sulfur content, high ductility, resistance to corrosion, and thermal and electrical conductivity is anticipated to drive the market.
