Primetals Technologies develops break-through technology for carbon-free, hydrogen-based direct reduction for iron ore fines


· Only process worldwide directly using iron ore concentrate fines from ore beneficiation with particle sizes of 100% smaller than 0.15 mm

· Low CO2 footprint due to usage of H2 as reduction agent

· Lower Opex and Capex Cost due to no agglomeration step required

· Modular plant design to match varying capacity. Minimum rated capacity of 250,000 tons per year

· Pilot plant will be set up at voestalpine Stahl Donawitz GmbH, Austria in partnership with voestalpine
