Title : Preparation and reduction behavior of carbon composite iron oxide pellets using woody biomass
Especially, biomass has a novel advantage, i.e., no CO2 emissions, because of carbon neutral. Recently, charcoal composite iron oxide pellets were proposed to decrease CO2 emissions for the iron-making. These pellets were promising to decrease the starting temperature for iron oxide reduction. From these backgrounds, we propose carbon composite iron oxide pellets using woody biomass in order to decrease CO2 emissions. In this work, semi-charcoal composite iron oxide pellets have been prepared and the effect of residual V.M. and gasification rate of semi-charcoal on reduction of iron oxide were investigated. Furthermore, the effect of the semi-charcoal particle size was also investigated.
