SA unveils strategy to export green iron by 2030

Brandon How

South Australia has set 2030 as the target for its first green iron exports in a new state strategy that paves the way forward for the burgeoning industry.

The Green Iron and Steel Strategy was launched on Thursday alongside an expression of interest process inviting industry to “co-design, co-investigate” ‘pit-to-port’ green iron projects in the Upper Spencer Gulf.

By 2030, the state government wants the first shipment of green iron to have been exported and construction to have commenced on a ‘direct reduced iron’ (DRI) plant that uses green hydrogen as a feedstock.
