Fuel type

Anthracite - a hard type of coal with a carbon content of greater than 93%.

Aviation turbine fuel - This is a fuel used for aircraft jet engines, consisting either of kerosine (a petroleum fuel) or a mixture of naphtha and kerosine.

Blast Furnace gas (BF gas) - This is mainly produced and consumed within the iron and steel industry. It is obtained as a by-product of iron making in a blast furnace, and is recovered on leaving the furnace and used partly within the plant and partly in other steel industry processes or in power plants equipped to
burn it.

Burning oil - Otherwise known as kerosene and is a refined petroleum fuel, intermediate in volatility between motor spirit and gas oil, and it used for lighting and heating.

Burning oil (P) - A premium grade oil with a lower sulphur content than the standard grade of burning oil.

Coal - This covers all grades of coal including slurry. This is a naturally occurring solid fuel which exists in the form of seams at varying depths below the earth's surface.

Coke - This is the dense product of the carbonization of coal in an oven. The process of carbonization involves the decomposition of coal by heat in the absence of air. Coke is used as a fuel and assist in chemical processes in blast furnaces.

Coke-oven gas - This is a gas produced as a by-product of solid fuel carbonisation and gasification at coke ovens, but not from low temperature carbonisation plants. As described above, carbonization involves the decomposition of matter by heat in the absence of air. Gasification involves the conversion of a solid or liquid feedstock to a lower molecular weight gaseous fuel of lower carbon to hydrogen ratio.
