Rain Carbon Inc. (RCI) companies’ presence in the steel industry goes far deeper than just the pitches used in the production of graphite electrodes for electric-arc furnaces

Further steel-sector market presence includes the supply of green petroleum coke to metallurgical coke manufacturers as a high-purity blend component for metallurgical coking coals which enhances the lifespan of coking ovens. Our high-carbon Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) products are also widely used in the steel industry as a recarburizer. Our CARBORES® line of resins, produced at our RÜTGERS facilities, is used as a binder for refractories used in the steel industry.
