A greener shade of steel at Uni Newcastle

BHP is giving $10m over five years for research on “decarbonising steelmaking”

Steel production is responsible for 7 per cent to 10 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions and the partnership will focus on adding hydrogen to conventional blast furnaces and “emerging alternative low carbon technologies.”

Good-o, but will this be green enough for those in the Uni Newcastle community who successfully opposed former deputy PM Mark Vaile becoming chancellor because he chaired a coal miner (CMM June 11 2021)?.
