Latest issue of Australian University Science explores the rise of critical minerals

September 05, 2022

In the latest issue we explore how uncovering, processing and extracting critical minerals relies on continuous and evolving research and people trained in science.

Renewable energy, better batteries, internet connected devices and space exploration are all made possible by technologies that are in higher demand than ever before and rely on critical minerals.

In the latest issue of Australian University Science, Critical Minerals, produced by Refraction Media on behalf of the Australian Council of Deans of Science, we explore how uncovering, processing and extracting these minerals relies on continuous and evolving chemical, geological and physical research, alongside skilled people trained in science. This innovation in knowledge and technology that can only be delivered by Australian University Science.

As we transition to Industry 4.0, we look to the research expertise that’s leading us into the future in critical minerals research, development and commercialisation. 

Discover the rise of critical minerals and the role of isotope geochemistry, innovation in re-mining old deposits, accelerating Australia’s green energy transition, and the importance of science communication skills in ensuring Australia understands its national mineral inventory.
