AEC carries many types of minerals. Recently the 53,464 mt dwat, 2007 built, MV Pauline, carried about 35,000 mts NUT COKE from Colombia to Brazil. It is a low ash metallurgical coke of smaller grain size. It is used in smelters and in the production of ferro alloys. Nut coke is used in blast furnaces to increase productivity and achieve cost savings. It’s moisture content is relatively low and qualifies as a Group C cargo.
