Metallite Coke & Coal Pvt Ltd to set up Non-recovery type Coke Oven Plant (at Basboni in Ramkanali in Neturia in Purulia district of West Bengal with an investment of Rs. 1600 million. The project will be implemented in two phases. The required coking coal of 3900000 tpa will be imported from China, Australia and other countries Carbonization of coal will be carried out in coke oven plant to produce Low ash metallurgical hard coke. Crushed coal will then be charged in the oven and subjected to carbonization for 36 hours. During the carbonization, coal mass liberates CO, which is burnt in air to maintain the temperature in the oven around 1200oC. The unburnt CO will be burnt at several points like primary and secondary ducts, waste heat tunnel etc. The coke from the oven will then be subjected to quenching. After quenching, coke will be transferred to the coke wharf. The coke mass from the wharf will be stacked at the coke yard for sizing and screening. High temperature flue gases produced during coking will be supplied to WHRB for generation of steam to generate power.
