Title: A Novel Flash Ironmaking Process

Abstract

The project goal is to develop an entirely new transformational process for alternate ironmaking based on the direct gaseous reduction of iron oxide concentrates in a flash reduction process, with the ultimate objective of significantly increasing energy productivity (by reducing energy consumption by up to 57 %) and reducing environmental emissions, especially CO 2 emissions, versus the conventional blast furnace ironmaking route. The Novel Flash Ironmaking Process uses gaseous reducing agents, such as natural gas, hydrogen, other syngas, or a combination thereof. The proposed technology is to be applied to the production of iron as a feed to the steelmaking process, eventually replacing the blast furnace and other alternate ironmaking processes. The process can also be a part of a continuous direct steelmaking process.
