The Boyne Ultimatum:


Vast amounts of electricity are required by the Boyne Smelter to produce aluminium.

The electricity comes from Queensland's coal-fuel power stations.

Global warming and consequences of fossil fuel consumption will not be dismissed.


Alternative energy souces must be implemented to reduce CO2 emissions from coal-fired power stations.

This webquest investigates the options for supplying 10% of the Boyne Smelter's power requirements from alternative energy sources.
