In metallurgical processes, a higher usage of hydrocarbons is encouraged to bring down carbon emissions. In this regard, numerous investigations on reduction of oxides by C-O-H-N gas mixture have been reported. Attempts to simulate these reduction processes using shrinking core model, one of the common models used for such studies, have under predicted the reduction rates. This is perhaps owing to the fact that the homogeneous reaction in the gas phase is not being considered. If the reaction temperatures are above 1000K, which is generally so for many reduction processes, the homogeneous gas reaction rates are expected to be so high that one can assume local equilibrium in the gas phase. In the present study, reduction of wustite in a C-O-H-N gas mixture has been modeled using a shrinking core model considering the water gas shift equilibrium in the gas while it diffuses through the product layer.
