In this work, a comparison between CO reactivity of lumps and briquettes made of two different binder and three different raw materials is presented. Experimental results on the prereduction behavior of such materials in 70% CO and 30% CO2 atmosphere, heating rate of 0,17 K/s (10°C/min) at temperatures up to 1100°C are discussed. It was shown that briquettes presented higher CO reactivity, especially those whose molasses was the binder which had the highest reactivity. Level of oxygen also played an important role in CO reactivity. Comilog and Urucum with the highest oxygen level had highest reactivity while Assmang with the lowest oxygen level had the lowest reactivity between the raw materials. Porosity was a key variable to explain CO reactivity. Molasses briquettes had the highest porosity and the highest CO reactivity followed by bentonite briquettes and lumps.
