Due to our long experience of supplying base metals to the metallurgic industry, we understand very well the needs and quality requirements for other materials such as Anthracite and raw material coal.
High-quality anthracite coal has the highest carbon content of all types of coal with up to 97 percent carbon. As a result, this high-energy raw material and/or fuel also has the highest energy value. The next stage of compression by heat and pressure is then graphite. The almost residue-free combustion in combination with the high energy content of anthracite makes this coal very popular as a comparatively environment-friendly fuel.
The properties of anthracite include its unusual hardness, a low content of volatile components, smoke-free combustion, low flammability and low ash, oxygen and water content. In addition, the flame of anthracite coal burns particularly hot. Anthracite coal owes its name to its grey, shiny metallic color.
