A Preliminary Evaluation of New Processes for the Manufacture of Iron By Way of Liquid/Solid Phase Systems

Student thesis: Master's ThesisMaster of Science


A general selection procedure has been developed in an attempt to establish the most feasible and economic process for manufacturing a shaped iron product from an iron-bearing feedstock such as a low grade home iron ore.

The criteria used in making this selection were information availability, technical feasibility, and economics of a rudimentary nature. A computer programme based on simple compatibility rules was developed to assist in the early elimination of many of the alternatives.

As a result of this selection, six processing routes are recommended.
