Industry and Community


Innovation of low-emissions technology for brown coal usage requires major investment over a long period of time: up to 20 years from research concept to market development. Additionally, the availability and accessibility of human resource expertise is of critical concern for coal-based industries throughout the world.

Australia has vast world-class brown coal resources; totalling about a quarter of all known reserves. Low-emissions technologies, for both electricity generation and value-added products derived from brown coal, can limit damaging climate change and safeguard the nation's future economic prosperity.
