An economically viable and environmental friendly
method of generating hydrogen for fuel cells is by the
reaction of certain metals with steam, called metal-
steam reforming (MSR). This technique does not gen-
erate any toxic by-products nor contributes to the
undesirable greenhouse effect. From the standpoint
of favorable thermodynamics, total environmental
benignity, and attractive economics, iron appears
to be the metal of choice for such a process. An inex-
pensive source of iron for the MSR is the steel indus-
try's mill-scale waste via hydrogen and carbothermic
reduction, both of which are energy-intensive
