Today, ACCCI members represent over 95% of the metallurgical coke produced in the U.S. and Canada, including both merchant coke producers and integrated steel companies with coke production capacity, and 100% of companies producing coal chemicals in the U.S. and Canada.  Nearly 150 representatives from about 45 companies contribute their knowledge and expertise to enhance the effectiveness of the Institute’s programs.
