CSXT receives recognition for coke and coal chemical industry contributions


CSX Transportation received a service award from American Coke and Coal Chemicals Institute (ACCCI) May 10 at the institute's annual meeting in Monterey, Calif.
The award cites CSXT as "an exemplary leader and innovator in the transport of metallurgical coke and coal; as pioneer of the Coke Express fleet, which became the [dedicated train] model for the railroad industry; and as a trusted partner, which strives to ensure a viable domestic coke market," according to a statement prepared June 4.
ACCCI, a national trade association, represents merchant producers of metallurgical coke (both furnace and foundry coke); integrated steel companies producing furnace coke; producers and processors of chemicals derived from the distillation of coal and coal tar; and suppliers to the producers and processors.
