About Us

Green Steel of WA is a 100% Western Australian company with the goal of creating a sustainable steel manufacturing industry for Western Australia.

Green Steel of WA aims to bring true green steel manufacturing to Western Australia in an environmentally sustainable way. A number of trends support Green Steel of WA’s aim including decarbonization/reduced acceptability of existing carbon emissions, increasing availability of scrap steel (especially in countries that have urbanized with steady populations), rapidly reducing renewable energy costs, and emerging technologies that will compete; CCS for blast furnaces, versus hydrogen DRI as the key technology battle.

The company is in the process of developing two projects in Western Australia. The first is a green steel recycling mill using renewable energy in the South West of WA and the second is a green hydrogen-powered facility to produce green steel from iron ore in the Mid-West of WA.

Green Steel of WA is a part-owned subsidiary of Carbon Transition Pathways (Carbon TP) who has entered into a partnership between individuals with strong knowledge and capability in the steel-making, renewable energy and project and program management sector. The company was established in 2022 to develop Western Australia's green steel-making capability taking advantage of WA’s vast renewable energy resources and emerging technologies in steel-making.

Our purpose

Our purpose is to create a sustainable steel manufacturing industry for Western Australia.

We believe that the global transition to green steel presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Western Australia as we truly believe that WA is the best place in the world to produce green steel, a goal that we are 100% committed to achieving.

We are not burdened by having to choose between WA and other states, countries, commodities and industries.


We believe that the only way to achieve this is through industry and government collaboration.

We understand how to and have a proven track record of bringing like minded people and organisations together to achieve a common goal.

We also believe that the opportunity for our state is so large that there would be no losers if we all work together.
