Abstract

Economics of blast furnace process, which determines the total cost of production, is one of the most important elements of management in steelworks. In the article the coke consumption from different manufacturers in the blast furnace process in chosen metallurgical plant over five years was presented. Water, ash and volatile matter in the cokes used during this period was analysed. Quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the research cokes was also made. The obtained data was compared with guidelines contained in the BAT (Best Available Techniques), guideline for Iron and Steel Production.

Keywords: Coke, pig iron, humidity, ash, volatile matter
