Harness sustainable downstream opportunities

Report on sustainable downstream opportunities, including value and supply chain opportunities and requirements.

Stream 3 - reports on sustainable downstream manufacturing opportunities, including value and supply chain opportunities and requirements.

The third work stream looks at opportunities for downstream processing and manufacturing to convert as much of the commodities we mine into intermediate products used in more advanced manufacturing activities.

It looks at our comparative advantage through market analysis, supply and logistics chain mapping, cost structures and infrastructure availability and capacity. It is also considering the growing role of renewables and circular economy issues.
