Outotec Circofer Coal-Based Reduction

Based on over 60 years of experience in fluidized bed technology, Outotec has developed the Circofer coal-based process which produces pre-reduced feed material for smelting reduction reactors, such as AusIron, or electric smelting furnaces - the final product being hot metal or pig iron.

  • Significantly increases the capacity of the downstream smelting furnace
  • Decreases the power consumption of a downstream electric smelter.
