This is an indispensable journal for engineers, chemists and technical staff involved with coal carbonization and the production of metallurgical and gas coke, and in the recovery and refining of the by-products of coking. It is the only Russian systematic source of information on the selection and preparation of coals for carbonization, the coking process as such, and the recovery and processing of the chemical products of carbonization. The journal is also useful for academics and students in the field as well as for practitioners.
The main sections of the journal are coal, coke, chemistry and environmental protection. Subjects covered are:
Coal analysis and beneficiation for coking
Coke production and quality improvement: oven design, feedstock formulas, composition control
Coal and coke chemistry: by-products, tar extracts, additives, utilization
is published under the auspices of a number of plants and organizations of the coking industry of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. A valuable feature of the journal is the inclusion of statistics on the supply and demand situation in the Former Soviet Union for coke and coke byproducts and information on calculating production costs and prices.
The journal publishes scientific developments and applications in the field of coal beneficiation and preparation for coking, coking processes, design of coking ovens and equipment, by-product recovery, automation of technological processes, ecology and economics. It also presents indispensable information on the scientific events devoted to thermal rectification, use of smokeless coal as an energy source, and manufacture of different liquid and solid chemical products.
