Carbonyl Metals Plant
The Mond process, for extracting ferrous metals from in-situ resources at low temperatures, is the basis of the Metals Plant concept. It requires pressurized carbon monoxide, to form the metal carbonyls that are the intermediate step to vapor deposition of these metals. The carbonyl bonds are broken at lower pressures and higher temperature, depositing metal, and freeing carbon monoxide.
