BioCoke4FAI – 2nd Project Meeting

On November 29 and 30, the second BioCoke4FAI project meeting took place. The meeting took place in Zabrze at the seat of the Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal – the project promoter. In addition to the employees of the Institute, the meeting was attended by representatives of all partners co-implementing the project, i.e. the SINTEF Institute from Norway, the ERAMET company from Norway and the Częstochowa Nowa Coking Plant. The aim of the meeting was to present and discuss the project results obtained so far, discuss current issues related to its implementation as well as plan future activities. As part of the meeting, the participants also made a technological visit to the Częstochowa Nowa Coking Plant, where they could learn in detail about the technological system of coke production with use of stamp-charged technology.

Presentation on the 37th International Cokemaking Conference

On November 10 and 11, the 37th International Cokemaking Conference was held. The conference took place in Ostrava in the Czech Republic, and was attended by over 100 representatives of several dozen companies related to the cokemaking industry and research companies from various European countries. At the conference, a poster was presented: The influence of charcoal addition to coking blend on quality parameters of produced bio-coke. The poster shows the current results of the assessment of the charcoal addition (to the coking blend) on the quality parameters of produced bio-cokes. The tests were carried out for the conditions of the gravity charged and stamp charged coke oven batteries. The obtained results are promising and met with the interest of the conference participants.

Presenation on Mineral Engineering Conference MEC 2020/2021

On October 21, the 5th Mineral Engineering Conference 2020/2021 was held. The conference was held on-line. At the conference, an employee of the Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal, Dr. Eng. Michał Rejdak gave a lecture presenting selected results of the project with the acronym BioCoke4FAI (Bio-coke for ferroalloys industry production), concerning the impact of the addition of commercially available charcoal on the mechanical strength of the compacted coal charge. This form of coal charge is used for the production of coke in coke oven batteries using the stamp-charging method. Therefore, from the point of view of industrial production of bio-coke based on coal-biomass blends, the assessment of the impact of the addition of bio-components on the strength parameters of the coal charge is very important.
