Mehdi Azadi is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Sustainable Minerals Institute, The University of Queensland. Mehdi is a chemical engineer with experience in mineral processing and Oil & Gas industries. He is specialised in the development of climate change mitigation technologies within the mining industry. His research is focused on finding practical solutions that mitigate and offset the environmental impacts of mining operations, and support the mining industry in ensuring the future of minerals supply.

Climate change accountability plays a critical role in ensuring the security of the future of minerals supply. Mining has an important position in enabling our modern lifestyle and the development of infrastructure for green technologies; and, therefore, it is important to acknowledge and point out the risk of climate change on mining infrastructure. A comprehensive carbon accounting framework, that takes into consideration all mitigation opportunities, is required to implement climate change mitigation strategies within mining supply chain.
