Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey has welcomed the idea to develop Australia’s first green steel production in Whyalla.
Last week Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor announced a new $18bn technology roadmap in the Spencer Gulf for a Hydrogen Hub that will use that capacity to produce green steel.
The Federal Government has allocated the funding over the next 10 years to invest in developing projects.
“GFG Alliance’s Sanjeev Gupta has already flagged his intention to make the Whyalla steelworks an internationally competitive “green steel” hub as part of his transformation of the steel works.”
Mr. Ramsey Said “South Australia already boasts the largest wind and solar generation capacity in the nation with investment and construction continuing at pace. With any amount of possible new sites, it strongly demonstrates our suitability for the establishment as a “hydrogen hub.”
