AbstractAn improved fluid coking process is provided in which an aqueous sludge comprising an organic waste is used as quench in a quench elutriator to cool the coke product and convert at least a portion of the organic waste to a vaporous compound (e.g., hydrocarbon) which is recycled to the heating zone to increase the fuel value of the heating zone gaseous effluent.
