We mainly originate coking coal from South Africa, Russia & Mozambique through spot transactions and strategic long-term offtake agreements.
Coking coal is alternatively referred to as metallurgical coal. It is essential to the manufacture of blast-furnace coke and foundry coke; irreplaceable ingredients used in steel production. About 70% of worldwide steel production uses coking coal. Coking coal is transformed into coke by purifying it into almost pure carbon by heating bituminous coal in absence of oxygen to extremely high temperatures.
Coke quality is largely influenced by the grade of coal, composition, mineral content and its ability to soften when heated, become plastic, and resolidify into a coherent mass. Bituminous class coals of high, medium, and low volatile grade that possess these properties are called coking coals.
Integrated Supply Chain for Coking Coal
By leveraging extensive shipping & end to end logistics capabilities, Berium Group is committed to support steel manufacturing industries and other third party partners across the world with the required quality of coking coal in bulk. We provide metallurgical coal together with iron ore as feedstocks for steel production operations. We are committed to supporting clients with coking coal that has narrow range of volatility and plasticity. We can supply the products regularly, reliably and competitively.
Value added service for Coking Coal industrial users
Through established relationship and access to large reserves of open cut coal and shipments via the main bulk terminals for coal from South Africa, Russia & Mozambique, Berium offers reliable long term supply of coking coal. We selectively and primarily focus on global supply of the following multi use coals:
