Carcoke Marly Part 1
 
Photographed: December 2003
Web: Januari 2004
Last known status: Partly destroyed, complete destruction imminent

Of the three Carcoke factories Marly was shut down first, it was 1993 when the last cokes were pushed out of the furnaces. Part of Carcoke Marly was destroyed some years ago and december 2003 was going to be the final chapter. Carcoke Marly was fighting back however: In the first week of demolition one of the scrubbers caught fire and one week later the fire was still burning and smoke was still bellowing out of the scrubbers. The smoke was believed to be harmless at first but when the fire was finally put out it appeared that there were traces of carcinogenic hydrocarbons in the smoke. No wonder if you know that these scrubbers were used to absorb the hydrocarbons out of the gas that is given off by pyrolysis of the coal.
