The Collie green steel recycling mill will use an electric arc furnace powered by renewable energy, turning scrap steel from Western Australia into rebars for domestic use and export.

The plant will abate 800kt of CO2e per year, create 200 long-term jobs in the area, and up to 2000 indirect jobs. The project is in the advanced stages of development and is expected to begin operations in 2026.

This is partly a result of Collie’s Just Transition plan which has brought together industry, community, unions and government to maximise opportunities for Collie as it transitions from a coal-based community.
