Direct Reduction Process - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Natural gas cannot be used directly in the reduction of iron ore because it decomposes to form soot at a temperature below that which iron oxide can be reduced. Natural gas is used in three main ways: first, as a feedstock for producing the reducing gas, second as a fuel for supplying the necessary heat in the furnace and gas reformer, and ...

GASIFICATION AND THE MIDREX? DIRECT REDUCTION

Iron Ore Reduction Iron ore consists primarily of iron oxide (Fe2O3), a combination of iron and oxygen. The basic function of all iron ore reduction technologies is to economically remove the oxygen from the iron ore and leave only the iron. Iron is the main component of steel, one of the world’s most useful materials. If the
