Join one of Australia’s leading authorities on clean energy technology who will explain how heavy industry can reduce its pollutants so that global emissions targets can be met.
Professor Gus Nathan, Director of the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Energy Technology will explain how the global appetite for low-carbon construction and manufacturing materials is set to skyrocket and how Australia is uniquely placed to satisfy demand.
Blessed with an abundance of both mineral and sustainable energy resources, Australia could easily produce enough ‘green’ products to not only revitalise its manufacturing sector, but totally transform heavy industry and the national economy.
Low-carbon iron products promise to triple the $80 billion currently earned from iron ore exports. Green alumina and cement products could bring in tens of billions of dollars in revenue for Australia. Job creation could be in the hundreds of thousands.
To help Australia capitalise on the opportunity, the University of Adelaide is leading multiple research projects to develop innovative new technologies, tailored to local conditions.
In the opening Research Tuesdays presentation for 2021 you’ll hear all about them.
