POSCO is studying the feasibility of using green hydrogen to power a hot briquette iron plant near Port Hedland, with a proposal for the multi-billion dollar project before WA’s environmental watchdog.
“POSCO is obviously a customer of Rio’s and this is an industry-wide challenge,” Mr Trott said. “We are doing some works with POSCO already and if there’s an opportunity that meets our needs and meet their needs, we’re absolutely open-minded to that.”
