In this paper the results of numerical calculations of chemical composition of flue gases, produced by
combustion of natural gas, were presented. Calculations were conducted for metallurgical pusher furnace,
working in one of the steelworks located in Poland. The chemistry of combustion process was modeled using
the program CHEMKIN-PRO. Simulations of the chemical composition of flue gas, in various zones of the
furnace, were carried out based on the measurement data collected from the real object.
