Title: Abstract - Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between SIOX and National Energy Technology Laboratory

Abstract

DOE’s Fossil Energy Program has made significant scientific advancements and provided technology solutions over the years ensuring energy security in the United States. This project highly leverages both past and current technology development efforts and utilizes the expertise of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in a collaborative effort with SIOX. The proposed effort involves conversion of a steel manufacturing byproduct, iron oxide hematite (Fe2O3), and transforms it into a salable magnetite product applicable to a number of markets. SIOX managers have experience operating a magnetite production facility based on a rotary kiln reactor process. Unfortunately, that process is both costly and inefficient, making it difficult to achieve desired economies, purity, and throughput levels. Recent NETL innovations in multi-phase fluidization technology would allow for successful development of a continuous, fully-integrated process capable of producing synthetic magnetite products. The reactor is based upon a spouting bed technology (patent pending) that allows for the even mixing of the ultrafine hematite which normally packs with all of the reacting gas bypassing the solid particles.
