Using COREX® Export Gas | COREX®/MXCOL®
The COREX® Plant uses a melter/gasifier to simultaneously produce hot metal and export syngas that can be used within a MIDREX® Shaft Furnace. This is known as a COREX®/MXCOL®DRI Plant.
An MXCOL® Plant based on the use of COREX® export gas can provide high quality DRI in addition to the blast furnace-grade hot metal from the COREX® Plant.
The application of export gas from the COREX® hot metal process as reducing gas for the production of DRI in a MIDREX® Shaft Furnace has been an operational reality since 1999.
