MIDREX® Direct Reduction Flexibility

MIDREX® Plants are designed to meet the specific requirements of each client because the MIDREX® Process allows for the broadest selection of proven process options.

Whether the requirement is for 500,000 tons per year or 2.5 million tons per year and higher, owners know they will receive high performance and reliability from the MIDREX® Process.

The shaft furnace-based MIDREX® Process provides outstanding investment value through an efficient way to reduce iron oxide with the greatest operational flexibility.


The MIDREX® Process can:

  • Derive reducing gas from the energy source most readily available and competitively priced
  • Efficiently reduce local iron oxide pellets and ores of varying quality either separately or in differing combinations
  • Discharge DRI either cold or hot and in any combination simultaneously to produce cold DRI (CDRI), hot briquetted iron (HBI) and hot DRI (HDRI)
