"A new Australian green steel industry could create tens of thousands of
jobs in regional areas reliant on coalmining, particularly in central
Queensland and the Hunter Valley, giving them a future as demand for
carbon-intensive goods falls.
That is the conclusion of a report by the Grattan Institute, a thinktank
linked to the University of Melbourne, which examined claims Australia
has the potential to become a green energy “superpower”.
Assessing the viability of clean manufacturing possibilities, the
institute found green steel made with renewable hydrogen could become a
multibillion-dollar export industry employing 25,000 people in regions
likely to be hardest hit by global steps to cut greenhouse gas emissions."
