" means coal that is pulverized and injected into a blast furnace. Those grades of coal used in the PCI process are generally non-coking. However, since such grades are utilized by the metallurgical industry, they are considered to be a metallurgical coal. PCI grade coal is used primarily as a heat source in the steelmaking process in partial replacement for high quality coking coals which are typically more expensive."
Pension Contribution Insurance. This is a standalone contract linked to a personal pension arrangement. It is intended to ensure that the value of your pension at retirement is maintained on your behalf. PCI will ensure that your full pension contributions continue to be paid in the event of inability to work due to illness or injury. It pays the pension contributions until the selected retirement date or your subsequent return to employment. The product provider ensures payment into the pension. Currently, no providers make PCI available to persons who do not have a pension arrangement with them. back
