In the aluminiumAluminium industry, the quality of anodesAnode has a direct impact on the production cost, energy consumption, and environmental emissionsEnvironmental emissions. AnodeAnode properties are strongly affected by the quality of binding between coke and pitch. One of the most promising avenues to enhance this binding is the modificationModification of pitch properties using additivesAdditives. They help increase the concentration of pitch surface functional groups and consequently improve coke-pitch interactions. The current work was undertaken to establish an additiveAdditives selection method which would yield improved coke wettability by modified pitch. This article describes the method and presents the results for three different additivesAdditives. Non-modified and modified pitches were characterized by carrying out wettability tests and FTIRFTIR analyses. Coking values (CV) of non-modified and modified pitches were also measured. The results show that it is possible to improve coke-pitch interactions via the utilization of additivesAdditives .
