Copper for Tomorrow CRC bid

Copper is essential in our transition to a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable future. It’s a sustainable copper paradox: how do we increase the production of copper needed for society, and do so by processing lower grade ores, without using more energy and water, and producing more waste? The proposed Copper For Tomorrow CRC (for submission in 2022) will bring together industry and researchers to solve this challenge while helping companies to achieve their environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) goals and remain profitable.

It will provide much needed resources, capabilities, linkages and partners that can accelerate and de-risk the developing hydrogen industry and related projects. CRC’s are industry led and driven and your input is essential in to ensuring the bid addresses industry needs.
