Green cokeraw coke
) is the primary solid carbonization
product from high boiling hydrocarbon fractions obtained at temperatures below
It contains a fraction of matter that can be released as volatiles during subsequent
heat treatment at temperatures up to approximately
This mass fraction
, the so-called volatile matter, is in the case of green coke
between 4 and 15 wt.%, but it depends also on the heating rate.
is an equivalent term to green coke
although it is now less frequently used. The so-called volatile matter of green coke
depends on temperature and time of coking
, but also on the method for its determination.
