Metallurgical coke is obtained by destructive distillation of blends of bituminous coal. The primary by-products obtained by distillation of bituminous coal include coke, coal tar, coal gas, and amino acid liquor. The thermal value of the coke is decided by the carbon content present in the coke, higher the carbon content higher the thermal value of the coke.

Metallurgical coke is used in applications where a robust, resilient and high quality wearing carbon is needed. The production of iron and steel is the primary application of the metallurgical coke. The other sectors in which metallurgical coke plays a significant role in the construction industry and the automobile industry.
