The DRI dilemma: Could raw material shortages hinder the steel industry’s green transition?

– Raw-material shortages have the potential to disrupt the market for direct reduced iron, but industry participants are already planning to implement new strategies.

Pressure to decarbonize: Drivers of mine-side emissions

– As stakeholders pressure mining companies to reduce emissions, operations must monitor their environmental impact and ultimately move toward zero-carbon mining.

Creating the zero-carbon mine

– Despite a daunting timeline, zero-carbon mines are within reach if the right solutions are implemented.

Tackling the challenge of decarbonizing steelmaking

– Plans put in place now may lead to significant emissions reductions.

Succeeding in the AI supply-chain revolution

– New technology solutions could be transformative—but only if executives properly prepare their organizations.

Streaming and royalties in mining: Let the music play on

– Renewed growth sentiment among miners’ management teams, combined with the rise of streaming-and-royalty financing over the past ten years, suggests that this particular type of alternative financing could be set for significant expansion over the next decade.
