What is Calcined Petroleum Coke and how do we assess it?

We began assessing anode-grade calcined petroleum coke (CPC) on a monthly basis in May 2013 at the request of the aluminum industry. The US Gulf CPC price assessment was the first to reflect the spot tradable value for CPC used by aluminum smelters, in a market where most purchases are done quarterly or semi-annually, and often retroactively.

The assessment takes into account any spot transactions or firm bids and offers, as well as netbacks of other global transactions, bids and offers, and is normalized to a typical grade being exported from the US Gulf.

The Platts US Gulf Coast CPC price assessment is published in Platts Metals Daily in the Aluminum section and on our real-time news and price service, Platts Metals Alert, along with a monthly analysis of global market trends.
