The objective of the project is to produce liquid ferrochrome by smelting reduction of chrome ores using injected coal and oxygen such that it can be used directly for the production of stainless steel, thus developing a through-route from chrome ore to stainless steel without the need for expensive electrical energy. The work is based on pilot scale rectors operating in both batch and continuous mode, together with computing facilities for process modelling and data evaluation.
