Midrex H2

May 20, 2020

While the natural gas-based MIDREX Process, paired with an EAF has the lowest CO2 emission of any steelmaking route using iron ore, there is room to further decrease emissions by using hydrogen as a fuel and chemical reactant in the process.

The best possibility for now and the near future is to use green hydrogen to produce DRI as feedstock for steelmaking. This is known as MIDREX H2.
