Technology Description:

Georgia Institute of Technology is developing a method to produce net-shaped engineered lattice structures and cellular structures of alloy steels by solid-state direct reduction of extruded structures. Domestically mined taconite ore would be refined to remove impurities and obtain finely ground sinter-grade iron oxide powders. The fine iron oxide powder combined with other oxide powders and polymer binders would then be extruded into desired structures. The structures will be reduced in a flowing atmosphere containing hydrogen to obtain the final net-shaped alloy steel products via solid-state sintering.
