FREE EVENTS: Does ‘Green Steel’ really threaten coal?

Queensland is the world’s biggest exporter of metallurgical coal, used in the production of steel. Coal conglomerates say we need to keep mining coal for steel until the 2090s! 

Given the state of our climate this MUST BE FACT-CHECKED.

Our market experts argue there ARE alternatives to the use of coal in steel production, but due to the interests of the big mining companies, these alternatives are not well publicised or understood. 

These timely discussions are for anyone interested in the future of one of Queensland’s biggest exports, and what it means for our climate, our economy and our communities.
