Rain Industries’ step-down wholly owned subsidiary -- Rain Carbon Inc. -- will resume shipments of petroleum coke to its Vizag calcining facility in Visakhapatnam, India. This follows an October 9 ruling by the Supreme Court of India that exempts calciners from the nation's recent ban on the importation of petroleum coke for use as fuel, which was enacted as part of the country's effort to reduce industrial emissions.
Rain Carbon uses green petroleum coke (GPC) as its primary feedstock in the production of calcined petroleum coke (CPC), which is an essential raw material in the anodes required during the electrolytic process of aluminum production. The company also imports CPC for blending at its Vizag facility. Under the Supreme Court's ruling, India's calcining industry will be permitted to import up to 1.4 million metric tons of GPC annually; the ruling also permits India's aluminum industry to use up to 500,000 tons of imported CPC per year.
Rain Industries is engaged in the business of manufacturing cement, Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) and power. It is the largest producer of CPC with a production capacity of 2.49 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).
