Benefits of the MIDREX® Reformer

The basic concept of the MIDREX® Reformer remains the same as when it was first introduced; however, the performance, reliability and flexibility have steadily improved, allowing even older MIDREX® Plants to outproduce and outperform competing technologies’ new facilities.

Key Benefits:

  • No steam system required for reforming
  • No CO2 removal system required for operation
  • Hot reducing gas can be directly used in the MIDREX® Shaft Furnace without quenching and reheating
  • No O2 required for reforming
  • By using CO2 for reforming, less natural gas is required
  • Enables MIDREX NG™ to be a simple closed loop system, minimizing energy consumption and the number of moving parts within the plant
