Using pure oxygen in blast furnace is a developing method in blast furnace in order to lower the emission of waste gases. Numerical simulation has been applied to analyze the combustion process of co-injection of natural gas (NG) and pulverized coal (PC) in a blast furnace while the blast is pure oxygen gas. The effect of injection NG and blast flow rate on the coal and coke combustion processes is examined. The predicted results provide a better understanding of reactions inside blast furnace.
