Hydrogen-based reduction of iron ores



Directed by

Dr.-Ing. Hans Bodo Lüngen


• CO2-emissions and their mitigation in the steel industry
• History, developments and processes of direct reduction
• Thermodynamics and kinetics of hydrogen-based reduction
• Injection of carbon-hydrogen carriers into the blast furnace
• Iron ores for hydrogen-based direct reduction
• Hydrogen-based direct reduction with Midrex
• Hydrogen-based direct reduction with HyL/Energiron
• SteelmakingI in the EAF or in the SAF plus converter?
• Refractory material for DR plants / Hydrogen and refractories
• Hydrogen-based direct steelmaking with hydrogen plasma

Target groups

• Supervisors responsible for decisions on metallurgy, energy, strategy, environmental protection
• Analysts, stake holders and decision makers in energy transition, low carbon economy and decarbonization
• Staffs on reduction, R&D, raw materials and refractories
