Objectives were to reduce the cost of coking blends and to study the possibilities of using coking plant wastes and residual oils from the steel rolling-mill process (hazardous materials difficult to get rid of) as additives in a coal blend to be carbonized in a coke oven plant. A possible method of recycling the waste oils as additions in the coking process has been found, which could be applied to industrial scale. A thorough characterization of the tarry wastes from coking plants was made, and briquetting chosen as the method for their incorporation into the coking blends. Results from this partial briquetting are extremely promising and may be a solution for the treatment and recycling of these hazardous waste materials, also with possible applications to industrial scale.
