Project description
This multidisciplinary (metallurgy, thermodynamics, mineralogy, chemistry, industrial ecology) project will explore the fundamentals of formation, major properties and reactions of experimental (made partly with recyclable materials) and industrial metallurgical coke. Objectives: to collect quantitative data on various measurable properties of coke; to establish correlations between them and to reveal physical and chemical phenomena which act behind variations of major properties of coke (phase chemistry, 3D distribution of minerals and their shape, porosity, strength, reactivity). Applied results: data on properties of additive-bearing coke; guidance for selection of most appropriate additives for coking purposes; deepened knowledge on reactions in blast furnace; collections of digital (images, analyses) data and samples for future projects and education; evaluation of environmental, economic and societal impacts of using alternative raw materials in metallurgical coke production.
