Petroleum coke or petcoke is a byproduct of the oil refining process (light/heavy crudes). As refineries worldwide seek to operate more efficiently and extract more gasoline and other high value fuels from each barrel of crude oil, a solid carbon material known as petcoke is produced.

Petcoke is a hard solid petroleum product in black or dark gray, and is characterized by metallic luster and porosity. It is carbon-shaped stuff composed of tiny graphite crystals formed into granules, columns or needles.

Petcoke can take two different forms: green petcoke which is used as a fuel and calcined petcoke which is used as a feedstock by manufacturer for a wide range of products such as aluminum, paints, coatings and colorings which are used by millions of people.

Fuel grade petcoke represents roughly 80 percent of worldwide petcoke production. The cement industry is the main consumer of fuel-grade petcoke, accounting for over 60% of global annual production.
