Minerals mining boost

Posted on: Fri 18 Oct 2019

The use of minerals is essential in the manufacturing of low-carbon technologies, like solar panels and mobile phones.

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Enabling Eco-Efficient Beneficiation of Minerals is a Government-funded project to find greener and smarter techniques of minerals mining in Australia.

The University of Newcastle will lead the project together with a range of organisations and seven Australian universities such the University of South Australia (UniSA).

UniSA Research Professor David Beattie joins Breakfast to talk us through this massive project.
