ABSTRACT
An economically viable and environmental friendly method of generating hydrogen feed for fuel cells is by
the reaction of certain metals with steam, appropriately called `metal-steam reforming' MSR An
inexpensive source of iron for the MSR is the mill-scale waste from steel industry. Mill-scales have been
traditionally reduced to pure iron via hydrogen and carbothermic reduction processes both of which are quite
energy-intensive. In our research, however, the use of high temperature and hydrogen has been eliminated
by a novel solution-based technique whereby nanoscale iron powder is produced at room temperature. This
paper discusses some preliminary results of an investigation carried out to convert steel industry waste into
