Launching the production of syngas, SMS group company Paul Wurth has put into commission a pilot coke oven gas dry reforming plant in Dillingen at ROGESA Roheisengesellschaft Saar mbH.
The start-up of the plant means Paul Wurth can test its new reforming process using real industrial gases.
This technology forms a key component of Dillinger’s and Saarstahl’s H2SYNgas project. H2SYNgas is a development project by Dillinger based on Paul Wurth technology which focuses on syngas production and injection into the blast furnace. Syngas is a combination of hydrogen and carbon monoxide which acts as reducing agent to transform the iron ores charged into the furnace.
