Humic acid is inexpensive, and has a wide range of sources and a strong adsorption force with the surface of iron ore, and the size of its adsorption force is affected by some factors such as humic acid concentration, pH of the solution, and metal cations. The modified humic acid pellet binder (MHA) with strong adhesion and high viscosity was obtained through the separation and purification of solid wastes such as lignite and weathered coal and chemical modification treatment and successfully applied in the production process of iron ore pellets. After industrial tests, MHA can significantly improve the strength of green and dry pellets, less residue after high-temperature roasting, less metallurgical pollution, high strength of fired pellets, and can partially or completely replace bentonite.
