Use simple words.
Nice greetings from sunny Germany,

Dear Ge Ko,
Black coal is mined around here, being extracted from the seams beneath the sandstone cliffs.
The coal is crushed to a fine texture and then is loaded into the coke oven.
The heat inside the ovens ignites the coal and a controlled burning process lasting from 3 to 4 days removes the volatile chemicals or gases to leave carbonised coal. This carbonised coal is called coke.
The red hot coke is then pushed out of the coke oven onto a receiving car before being quenched under water sprays. It is then crushed and screened to various sizes.
Coke is supplied to metal smelters for high temperature smelting.

Ian, that was a very good explanation. I have understood everything. The process of coking, yet I know from school. In science subjects, I was good. In the language subjects, I was bad.
Ian, thanks for your effort.
I drove yesterday with my quad through my region.
11 pictures are new.
Greetings from the lowlands of the Oder river,
