Praxair, Midrex develop direct reduced iron process technology

DANBURY, US: Praxair Inc and Midrex Technologies have signed an alliance agreement to develop and market new process technology for the production of direct reduced iron (DRI) with a variety of fuels such as coke oven gas. The new process uses an innovative partial oxidation technology to convert hydrocarbon fuels into high quality, high temperature syngas suitable for DRI production.

Midrex and Praxair will perform a demonstration of the new technology at Midrex’s extensive DRI research facilities in Charlotte, North Carolina later this year. “With the help of Praxair’s unique technology we can open up new markets and offer more attractive choices for the production of DRI, especially in regions where traditional DRI fuels such as natural gas are not economically available,” said Stephen Montague, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Midrex Technologies.
