ABRIL, E.R.. Kinetics of iron oxide direct reduction by coal. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2002, vol.32, n.2, pp. 145-149. ISSN 0327-0793.
A new interpretation to the kinetics of iron oxide direct reduction, based on the influence of probability of activation of the reaction on the "flux of transformation", is presented in this paper. This interpretation is applied to justify a new process of direct reduction of iron oxides, by using carbon as the only reactant.
