Queensland Resources Sector a Hydrogen and Jobs Hot Spot

The Queensland Resources Council’s (QRC) latest State of the Sector report highlights the continuing adaptability and resilience of the state’s $82.6 billion resources industry, in spite of the impact of the global pandemic, Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said today.

Mr Macfarlane said a survey of QRC member company CEOs in February 2021 showed resources companies are actively looking at new technologies such as hydrogen to reduce emissions and grow their business in a sustainable way.

HYBRIT: SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall building unique Pilot Project in Luleå for large-scale Hydrogen Storage investing a Quarter of a Billion Swedish Kronor

SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall have commenced building a rock cavern storage facility for fossil-free hydrogen gas on a pilot scale next to HYBRIT’s pilot facility for direct reduction in Luleå, North of Sweden. This is an important step in the development of a fossil-free value chain for fossil-free steel. The investment cost of just over SEK 250 million (about 24 M €) is divided equally across the holding companies and the Swedish Energy Agency, which provides support via Industriklivet.

Act now to secure the UK’s critical Materials Supply, say Birmingham Experts


The UK must act now to ensure a stable supply of technology-critical metals (TCMs) essential for its transition to clean energy and the delivery of its ten point plan for a green industrial revolution, according to a new Policy Commission report produced by the University of Birmingham.

Technology-critical metals such as rare earths, lithium and cobalt are essential for emerging clean-energy technologies including electric vehicle batteries, and permanent magnets used in efficient motors and generators. Demand for these materials is expected to grow exponentially over the next 20 years as a result of the global race towards next generation clean-energy technologies.

Chaired by Sir John Beddington and convened by experts from the Birmingham Centre for Strategic Elements and Critical Materials (BCSECM), part of the University’s Birmingham Energy Institute, the commission’s report entitled “Securing Technology-Critical Metals for Britain” was produced in collaboration with leading academic, industry and public sector experts representing affected industries including automotive, aerospace, offshore wind, pharmaceuticals, metals processing, and recycling.

The report highlights the need for the UK to develop a proactive strategy in its acquisition and management of these materials, to keep pace with other national strategies such as those developed by the US, Japan, the EU and China.

Sir John Beddington commented: “Our ability to deliver on our international commitments will doubtless be enabled or constrained by our access to the technology-critical metals that underpin the clean energy transition. It is important to recognise the consequences that supply constraints on technology-critical metals could have on our future prosperity. Whilst there are immediate challenges that we face, we can anticipate more in the future – it is essential to be prepared.”

Professor Allan Walton, Co-Director of the BCSECM and one of the report’s authors, said: “Securing adequate material supply is critical to securing our place in the race to develop clean energy technologies. Establishing strategies for obtaining raw materials, together with strategic investment in processing technologies able to convert both primary and secondary sources of materials into high-performance components, will be a crucial step.”

Fellow BCSECM Co-director and report author, Dr Paul Anderson, commented: “Supply of raw materials is one part of the jigsaw. Equally important is building the capabilities required to convert raw materials into the chemicals, cathodes, alloys or magnets required by original equipment manufacturers. Developing processing technologies that can both produce these components from raw materials, and recycle them from used materials, will be necessary for the delivery of the government’s ten point plan for a green industrial revolution.”

The report identifies several key approaches to the critical materials challenge:

  • Prioritise technology-critical metals in UK Research and Innovation strategies
  • Seek opportunities to diversify access to critical material sources, including collaborating with other nations to expand the global supply chain
  • Invest in the UK’s ability and capacity to process technology-critical metals at both first use and recycling stages; this will reduce reliance on overseas supply chains
  • Establish a UK Technology-Critical Metals Observatory to act as a central information point for government
  • Review waste management law with a view to removing barriers to recycling and reusing technology-critical metals
  • Create a single body responsible for developing access to critical materials and developing effective collaboration between key government departments
