PhD Title: Understanding the Characteristics of Pilbara Iron Ore during H2 and NH3 Direct Reduction Ironmaking

Kaijie’s work focuses on understanding the characteristics of ore minerals, physical parameters, and impurities, and their implications in in the H2 and NH3 DRI processes and final products. This research will provide new information on iron ore direct reduction using carbon-free and renewable H2 and NH3 which will help optimize the iron ore reduction process and improve the product quality of directly reduced iron.

Kaijie graduated with a master’s degree in Geological Engineering from the Taiyuan University of Technology. He is currently pursuing his Doctor of Philosophy under the supervision of Dongke Zhang at the Centre for Energy of The University of Western Australia.
