Suspended Hydrogen Reduction of Iron Oxide ConcentratesCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Direct Reduced Iron|
|Energy Savings Potential||
This technology will require ~ 38% less energy than the blast furnace process or 7.4 GJ/ton of hot metal.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Even when natural gas or coal is used significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions 39% and 69% of the Blast Furnace value, respectively are estimated.
Low cost raw materials can be used.
