Basics for the Investors Consumption of Graphite Electrodes is 2.5 kg. per tonne of steel through EAF, whereas the consumption
is only 0.5 kg. per tonne of steel in ladle furnaces for refining the liquid metal

Project & Technology Information

Technology Company Manufacturing process, products specifications & equipments, facilities installed
USA Patent A method of producing low CTE graphite electrodes from needle coke formed from a coal tar distillate material having a relatively high initial boiling point.
Electrode Construction and Analysis By studying electrode formulations, different electrode designs, and newly developed materials, battery developers, automakers,  will have an increased knowledge of the limits of classes of technologies.
Graphite Production Technology Production technology for tougher graphite electrode for an electric arc furnace
Life Cycle Analysis the energy and CO2 releases for the production of Li-ion batteries with metals from the two origins.
Needle Coke Needle Coke is a premium grade, high value petroleum coke, used in the manufacturing of graphite electrodes for the arc furnaces in the metallurgy industry
A process for the production of needle coke invention A process is disclosed for producing needle coke from heavy atmospheric distillation residues having sulfur no more than 0.7wt%
USA Patent The invention disclosed in this application is a process for the production of a premium grade needle coke which is historically feedstock dependent. The selected feedstock for this process is a hydrotreated SRC material (solvent refined coal) which produces a premium grade needle coke having a low ash, low sulfur and low solids content
