Potential For Zero-Emissions Metals To Boost Australian Manufacturing

The growing demand for metals produced sustainably present an opportunity for Australian manufacturing, write the authors of a new report from the Energy Transition Hub.

Outlining a plan for zero-carbon metal manufacturing, the report, From Mining to Making, highlights that while metal production produces 9 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, there are ways to produce more metal, and cut its carbon footprint.

The author, Michael Lord, from the University of Melbourne, note that Australia has the potential to make the most of a future transition to zero-carbon metal.
