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.
- 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
