Use of the Active Carbon Recycling Energy System in ironmaking (iACRES) has been proposed for reducing CO$$_{2}$$ emissions. To evaluate the performance of iACRES quantitatively, a process flow diagram of a blast furnace model with iACRES was developed using Aspen Plus, a chemical process simulator. CO$$_{2}$$ emission reduction and exergy analysis were performed by using mass and energy balance obtained from simulation results. The following CO$$_{2}$$ reduction methods were evaluated as iACRES: solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC) with CO$$_{2}$$ capture and separation (CCS), SOEC without CCS, and a reverse water-gas shift reactor powered by a high-temperature gas-cooled reactor. iACRES enabled CO$$_{2}$$ emission reduction by 3-11% by recycling CO and H$$_{2}$$, whereas effective exergy ratio decreased by 1-7%.
