estimates that CarbonNet could support new industries which may deliver up to 3,000 construction jobs and then up to 1,000 ongoing operational jobs from 2030.
The report captures both the direct and indirect economic benefits related to the construction of the CarbonNet project and the operation of enabled industries such as hydrogen, fertiliser, waste to energy and gas.
Hydrogen is already being produced at the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) trial site and the CarbonNet project will underpin clean commercial hydrogen production if both projects are commercialised.
Minister for Resources Jaclyn Symes released the report on 30 July 2020 while visiting the HESC site in the Latrobe Valley. Ministerial media release: Carbon Reduction Tech Boosting Job Creation In The Valley
