Our coke products include: metallurgical coke, foundry coke, chemical gasification coke and calcium carbide production coke. Metallurgical coke is then further classified by quality into primary and secondary classifications, with more than 90% used in blast furnaces. The combustion of coke produces little or no smoke, so coke is the preferred fuel for stoves and furnaces in which conditions are not suitable for the complete burning of bituminous coal itself. By-products of coke oven gas from large-scale ovens can reduce energy consumption, increase the efficiency of production and improve the quality of products.
At Jinneng, coke oven gas is used to generate both heat and power in our gas turbines, and this power is then regenerated through gas recycling. Our plant a 4.3m tamping coke furnace with a production capacity of 800,000 tons/ year and 7m top-loading oven with a production capacity of 1.5 million tons/year. The scope of our equipment and technological abilities is unsurpassed within the Chinese market. Industry-wide, coke is mainly used for large furnaces and nonferrous blast furnaces, acting as a reducing agent, heating agent and in material column skeletons. In order to promote energy conservation and reduce the usage of outdated equipment, large steel mill blast furnaces will be a trend in the future.
The naturally dark pigment of carbon black is perfect for ink production. Furthermore, about 50% of the carbon black produced is used to provide reinforcement for rubber products, with the conductivity, UV protection and color making it a versatile and marketable material. In addition to extensive use in exterior and interior automobile components, 60% of carbon black is also used to manufacture tires (data source: The Punctual Business Network).
When used in the manufacturing of rubber products, the reinforcing effect of silica is second only to carbon black. On the other hand, silica surpasses carbon black when it comes to the reduction of tire flow resistance, improved endurance, and the prolonged service life of tires. Silica also aids in the production of "green tires". Other uses of silica include: as a filling agent in rubber, plastic, paint and synthetic resin, as a light polishing agent for metals, and as a mold release agent. It is also used in adhesives and insulating material, and as a food additive. At Jinneng, our silica and carbon black product lines are cross-promoted, as they share the same sales channel. In the future, the use of silica in rubber manufacturing and specifically tires is expected to increase exponentially.
Para-cresol (BHT) is a synthetic intermediate used to make other chemical compounds for use mainly in plastics, pharmaceuticals, pesticides and dyes. The primary plastics applications are as a stabilizer in petroleum, rubber, and plastic. P-cresol is also used in making anti-oxidants. Pharmaceutical applications are in disinfectants, UV absorbers in cosmetics and in liquid crystal materials. P-cresol is also used extensively in the production of different soluble pesticides, dyes and other industrial applications.
Sorbic Acid & Potassium Sorbate:
Sorbic acid and potassium sorbate are highly efficient and safe food preservatives that are recommended by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Health Organization. They can be metabolically absorbed, and quickly broken down into carbon dioxide and water. Furthermore, they leave no residue in the body after the process of metabolization. Sorbic acid and potassium sorbate are widely used in the food, beverage, tobacco, medicine, cosmetic, agricultural, poultry and pet food industries, as well as in the production of resin, spices and rubber.
Pure benzene, an essential compound in the organic chemical industry, is mainly used to produce synthetic resin, synthetic rubber, synthetic fiber, synthetic detergent, dye, organic pigments, drugs, spices, and pesticides. It can also serve as a heat carrier and solvent, since benzene is a favorable solvent of rubber, fat and many resins. Considering the vast number of applications and the importance of pure benzene to these applications, the yield and technological production level used to produce pure benzene at Jinneng place us at the forefront in the Petrochemical Industry.
Downstream industries that utilize methanol vary and include: formaldehyde, olefin, dimethyl ether (MTBE), and ethylic acid. About 40% of the methanol produced is converted to formaldehyde, which is then used in plastics, plywood, paints, explosives, and permanent press textiles. The methanol produced at Jinneng is in complete conformity with premium grade standards. In other indexes, the amount of alcohol is less than 30ppm and the moisture is less than 0.05ppm, which are far below industry levels of 100ppm and 0.1ppm, respectively.
