Petcoke (Petroleum Coal) Market News and Analysis

With its high caloric value and low ash content relative to coal, petcoke (or petroleum coal) production, is on the rise, led by Canada and China. IHS Markit predicts global petcoke production will rise to nearly 160 MT by 2016, up from 100mt in 2011. While petcoke serves as a carbon source for creating aluminum or steel, the majority of it is used as an energy source to create fuel for producing electricity or firing cement kilns. Given its history of safe storage, handling and transportation, as well as its low toxicity, petcoke has taken off as a globally traded commodity, with India as the target buyer, particularly since China implemented a quiet ban in early March 2016 on imports of petroleum coke containing more than 3% of sulphur.
