PCI Coal

Pulverized Coal Injection (PCI) is a process that involves blowing large volumes of fine coal granules into the BF. This provides a supplemental carbon source to speed up the production of metallic iron, reducing the need for coke production. As a result energy use and emissions can be reduced. Therefore, in recent years, Pulverized Coal Injection (PCI) systems are used in order to lower production costs as well as extend the life cycle of coke ovens.


Pulverised coal injection (PCI) is used to make steel. Mixing Prime PCI Coal with traditional coking coal improves the performance and efficiency of blast furnaces and reduces CO2 emissions by up to 20%. Prime PCI Coal/Semi Coke can also be used in the chemical and ferrochrome (an alloy of chromium and iron) industries.
