$70 million program to support coal mining abatement technology
The Federal Government’s $70 million Coal Mining Abatement Technology Support Package has been launched, providing funding to accelerate the development of abatement technologies and processes for the Australian coal mining industry.
The package has three key areas of focus:
- Supporting research, development and demonstration of abatement technologies and processes;
- Funding measures that address safety and regulatory issues associated with the development and deployment of these technologies; and
- Support to small and medium-sized mines to prepare carbon emissions abatement strategies.
The first round of funding for the Coal Mining Abatement Technology Support Package is currently open.
