From a smokeless fuel to a Texas County this is all about Coke.

From a smokeless fuel to a Texas County this is all about Coke.

Coke the fuel, is the result of burning off the volatile components of coal, including water, coal-gas, and coal-tar these are driven off by baking in an airless furnace at temperatures as high as 2,000 degrees Celsius. This fuses together the fixed carbon and residual ash the final product is coke.

It can be burned with little or no smoke and coke was one of the materials used in the heat shielding on NASA's Apollo program space vehicles.

Coke aka cocaine is also a crystalline tropane alkaloid that is obtained from the leaves of the coca plant, in this form it’s a stimulant, an appetite suppressant, and very addictive.

Coke is a county located on the Edwards Plateau in the U.S. state of Texas
