Severstal, one of the world's leading vertically integrated steel and mining companies, has patented a technology for the production of an innovative carbon-containing product. It is used as fuel for blast furnaces at the site of the Cherepovets Steel Works. The product was developed and implemented by specialists from the Center for Technological Development of Coke-and-Blast Furnace Production of CherMK in cooperation with Coke Shop No 1. The technology makes it possible to use low value coal grades from the Vorkuta deposits, which were previously considered only conditionally suitable for coking.

The product has been used at the CherMK site since December 2018. Today, two blast furnaces have been almost completely switched to using a solid substitute for coke. The end-to-end economic effect from the use of the IPUS from December 2018 to the present amounted to USD 29 million.
