This research project had two objectives. The first was to investigate the gasification, in air and carbon dioxide, of anode carbons typical of those used in the aluminium industry, to identify any differences in the behaviour of filler coke and the coke from the coal-tar binder pitch which could contribute to the excess anode consumption process of dusting. The second aim was to study the effect of pitch quality, especially the type and proportion of quinoline insolubles and the sodium content, on anode carbon oxidation behaviour. The results are presented in this report.
