Abstract

Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) developed and operated a process development unit (PDU) ''one-reactor'' plant, for developing a new smelting reduction process, CleanSMElt, during a pilot plant demonstration project supported by ECSC. Results to date confirm that CleanSMelt PDU is able to produce hot metal starting from iron ore and coal injected in a single reactor. The objective of the work under the present project was to understand the thermal and chemical relationships inside the reactor, in order to improve the performance of the smelting reduction process running on the PDU. This report details the activities on the PDU, the industrial dissemination, and the promotion of the CSM's smelting reduction technology.
