On September 21st, Mr. Kenneth Krupinski taught a course organized by the CAER entitled "Coal and Petroleum Coke-Making." The 33 participants learned from Mr. Krupinski's 30 plus years in the industry. The half-day short course provided a fundamental knowledge of coke and coke making. Topics covered included production methods, uses, and properties of the two major coke types (metallurgical and petroleum cokes). Other topics included: a history of coking; types of coke ovens – recovery, non-recovery, pre-heat, and jumbo; coal-tar production and collection; and coal-tar pitch production.
