Legacy of the Process Licensing Program

Plants from each of the five decades the MIDREX® Process has been available are in operation today.  This is a testimony to the basic design of the MIDREX Process as well as the effectiveness of the MIDREX® Process Licensing Program.

Through the years, countless numbers of Midrex and licensee personnel have been trained in the plants of fellow licensees.

Shared experiences have resulted in improvements of equipment designs, optimization of plant operations, and the introduction of new products including hot briquetted iron (HBI). The MIDREX® Process Licensing Program is what keeps MIDREX® Technology in touch with the wants and needs of the market. It provides the means to develop and perfect “the next great idea” while maintaining the vitality of existing ones.
