    KIVCET was the only commercial process for lead flash smelting until 2010. In 2011, Chinese process LOFS (Lead Oxygen Flash Smelting) joined KIVCET. The layer of carbon material formed in the smelting shaft at the surface of the melt bath under the flares of charge-oxygen burners is used as the reduction reactor in both processes. Conventionally, screened fraction of coke fines is used as a carbon material for formation of the porous layer. The possibility of usage of other carbon-bearing materials is reviewed in this Paper.
