Green Steel gains an advocate in northern Minnesota

Hanson speaks to the Ely Climate Group

Oct. 19, 2022:  On top of renewed media attention for its sulfate cleanup system, Clearwater BioLogic’s Jeff Hanson is also emerging as a champion for green steel development on the Iron Range. He was among the guests on Duluth public television’s Almanac North “Core Conversation” program The Future of Mining, which aired October 7 on WDSE. Hosted by Aaron Brown, the show included researchers, mining industry officials, and environmental advocates discussing both ferrous and nonferrous mining in the region. The next week, The Timberjay (northern St. Louis County, MN) covered Hanson’s presentation to the Ely Climate Group, a citizens’ climate action organization.
