Around 2500 new jobs are set to be created through our Government’s latest new $540 million investments in clean hydrogen and carbon capture technologies.

That’s why we're investing $540 million to fire up Australian businesses to come together to work on and develop cutting-edge, clean hydrogen and carbon capture technologies.
It’s going to deliver jobs and opportunities for Australia and also help drive us toward zero emissions.
“We are on your side. If you have a go in this country you’ll get a go. That’s what fairness in Australia means. My ambition is for an even stronger Australia – to keep our economy strong, to keep Australians safe and to keep Australians together.”
