Petcoke

Definition:

Short for petroleum coke, a solid fuel produced as a by-product of the oil-refining process.

Petcoke and coal are the fossil fuels used in cement kilns in Belgium.

In this assessment it is considered that the use of a tonne of waste as alternative fuel in cement kilns replaces a certain amount of petcoke (depending on the energy content of the waste).
