IMO 2020, EVs, and steel — a perfect storm in the needle coke ...
Petroleum needle coke is a key ingredient in the production of synthetic graphite electrodes for electric arc furnaces (EAFs) in the steel industry, as well as for lithium-ion battery anode material – both sectors which are forecast to see strong demand growth in the long-term.
Graphite: New Indian investment in needle coke — Roskill
Synthetic graphite primarily finds application in UHP grade graphite electrode manufacturing, which, in turn, is consumed for steel manufacturing through electric arc furnace (EAF) route. Globally, excluding China, the high-grade needle coke capacity is ~750 thousand tonnes and the capacity additions were limited over the years due to a subdued demand from the EAF steel industry.
Can lithium-ion anode demand for needle coke reduce ...
Yet the new regulations may have a further, more unexpected effect on the steel sector, and the nascent electric vehicle battery industry with their knock-on effects on needle coke production. Indeed, low-sulphur crude oil used in needle coke production for both graphite electrodes for EAF steelmaking and battery anodes could, in theory, be in ...
Factbox: What are graphite electrodes and needle coke? | Reuters
Needle coke is used as a primary raw material for graphite electrodes in electric furnace. It is a premium grade, high value petroleum coke used in the manufacturing of graphite electrodes of very low Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) for the electric arc furnaces in the steel industry.
