Of all the large tonnage of steel produced from ore today about 98% is made by blast furnace-basic oxygen furnace (BF-BOF) route. Notwithstanding the great advantages to the blast furnace iron making process as a concept, a constraint for this process route is its need for a costly and environment unfriendly coking process. It consumes 20-25% of the operating cost of iron making and account for 40-50% of the investment cost for blast furnace based iron making. Although the coke is an indispensable material for the blast furnace process, the changing blast furnace operative practices from "All coke" to high "Pulverised Coal Injection (PCI) Rates" imposes new demands on the coke quality. In the paper we present the properties of coke desirable to the blast furnace process for injection of a large amount of pulverised coal (HIGH PCR). The state of the art and recent development in the area of coke making processes are also presented in the paper.
