Steel industry

Coal, coke

Blast furnace coke is an essential fuel for the steel industry, but coke is also used by other industries because of its high calorific value. Its raw material, coal, comes to Hungary from the neighboring countries but also from Russian mines or from distant North and South America.

In addition to its use in the steel industry, its use in household and energy production is significant.

For independent certification of coal and coke, the Mertcontrol Group is fully prepared, including sampling and laboratory testing. Due to our international relations, we also serve your testing needs that cannot be fulfilled by the market players in Hungary due to lack of laboratory capacity.

Our services:

  • loading controls for road, rail and waterborne transport
  • accredited sampling of coal, coke
  • full laboratory tests
  • all these tasks at any port or transhipment point across Europe
