Direct Reduced Iron DRI, also known as Sponge Iron, offers an alternative steel production route to BF-BOF and Scrap-EAF routes. In DRI, iron ore is reduced in its solid state unlike BF process where a liquid metal is formed during reduction. DRI can then be transformed to steel in electric arc furnaces. DRI production is common in Middle East, South America, India and Mexico.
Modern steelmaking is an integrated process consisting of blast furnace BF ironmaking and basic oxygen furnace BOF or electric arc furnace EAF steelmaking. Molten steel from BOF or EAF process can undergo a secondary refining process in a ladle furnace, or be sent directly to the continuous caster.
to the named BFconverter production route, the combination of a direct reduction process DRP with an EAF represents a more environmental friendly process for steel production from iron ore. Currently, such processes are commercially available, but the market share is small due to the switch from the conventional BFconverter route to the DRP ...
Jan 01, 2019 Currently the majority of the worlds steel is produced through either one of the two main routes the integrated Blast Furnace Basic Oxygen Furnace BF BOF route or the Direct Reduced Iron - Electric Arc Furnace DRI - EAF route.
arc-furnace EAF processes. This rapid increase in crude steel production has also resulted in significant increases, as shown in Fig. 3, in the prices of iron ore and coking coal, the principal raw materials of iron and steel.3 There are some background factors e.g., i the current BF process relies heavily on high-grade ore mined in
There is also a shift from production via the Blast Furnace to the Electric Arc Furnace in other parts of Europe, as increasing amounts of scrap are returned to the steel industry. So in Europe BF and EAF currently have an equal share of the market, and in China this stage is expected to be reached by 2020.

Jul 12, 2021 Since most of the energy used in this process comes from natural gasses, this reduces the need for coal and coke, but also reduces the associated emissions sulfur oxides, carbon dioxide, etc. into the atmosphere. This bypasses the blast furnace BF all together. DRI is comparatively more energy efficient steel made using DRI requires significantly less fuel, in that a traditional BF is not ...
As direct reduced iron significantly lowers the need for batch charges that eventually raises the overall cost-efficiency and productivity of the process, DRI remains among the favored feed for electric arc furnaces EAF DRI market is set for 7 growth in 2021, as rise in EAF steel production is set to drive the consumption of DRI
Jan 11, 2016 Iron and steel production is an energy and carbon dioxide CO. 2 intensive manufacturing process. In the four countries investigated in this report, two types of steel production dominate blast furnacebasic oxygen furnace BFBOF and electric arc furnace EAF production. BFBOF production uses iron ore to produce steel.
The BF uses coke refined coal as the energy source and reductant. This process route generates about two tons of CO2 for every ton of steel produced. The natural gas-based MIDREX Direct Reduction DR Process, paired with an electric arc furnace EAF, has the lowest CO2 emissions of any commercially proven steelmaking route.
steel is the backbone of modern society, generating jobs and economic growth. Infinitely recyclable, steel allows cars, cans and
Jul 12, 2021 Electric Arc Furnace EAF steelmaking uses steel scrap, Direct reduced iron DRI, or a combination of these materials as the primary feedstock.While it is possible to produce 100 recycled steel, with a feedstock of only scrap steel, EAF steelmaking often uses a mixture of scrap and DRI, or even supplemental amounts of pig iron produced in a blast furnace BF.

Dec 23, 2020 The process is among several initiatives which use an H2-DR EAF setup, combining the direct reduction of iron ore by use of H2 with an EAF for further processing into steel. The product from the H2-DR process is DRI or sponge iron, which is fed into an EAF, blended with suitable shares of scrap, and further processed into steel.
