Stiff vacuum extrusion has been applied for the agglomeration of the iron ore concentrate and fine coal. The products of agglomeration– extrusion briquettes (BREX) were subjected to the high temperature reduction. Under the conditions similar to the ITmk3 process in general. It has been demonstrated that the iron ore and coal BREX could be considered as the alternative to the iron and coal pellets for the high temperature reduction in furnaces like Rotary Hearth Furnace (RHF).
