Green petroleum coke is used in the form of sponge coke, shot coke, purge coke, needle coke, and honeycomb coke. Sponge coke is most widely used as a solid fuel to manufacture anodes in the aluminum industry. It is a porous coke produced by adding effective amounts of a carbonaceous material that contains oxygen. Purge coke is produced during the process of producing heat form coking reactions to convert vacuum residual into gasses, distillate liquids, and coke. This process is known as flexi coking.

Needle coke is mainly produced from coal tar pitch or FCC decant oil. It is also known as acicular coke. It has high resemblance to the collection of vertical aligned needles. The properties of needle coke include a low puffing tendency, low coefficient of thermal expansion, and high mechanical strength.
