Tar residue is the solid waste produced in coking plants or gas generators. Utilizing tar residue as additive in coal blending for coking is an effective approach for coal coking in our country, not only improving the yield and nature of coking products, but also realizing the recycling of tar residue. In this paper, tar residue is used as additive in coal blending for coking experiments, and combined with experiments on the crucible coke, small coke oven and industrial coke oven, the influences of the addition amount of tar residue on coke yield, coke reactivity and coke strength after reaction are further analyzed. As the experiment results reveal, compared to the experiment results of crucible coke and small coke ovens, the coke yield, coke reactivity and coke strength after reaction of industrial coke ovens are all bigger, leading to potential industrialization of coal blending for coking. Moreover, the influence of the amount of tar residue on the coal tar yield rate and gas yield is the same as that of coke reactivity and coke strength after reaction.
