“The usage of the coke gas will allow to decrease natural gas consumption, by substituting it with a much cheaper fuel – blast-furnace coke mix. Thus the works will be saving some 30 million cubic meters of natural gas per year”, said the company press-service.
In its turn the excess blast-furnace gas from Zaporizhstal will be supplied to Zaporozhkoks. The company has already updated its equipment to use blast-furnace coke for the production of electric and heating energy. (Ukrainian metal)
