Sasol and ArcelorMittal South Africa are partnering to develop carbon capture technology and produce sustainable fuels, chemicals and green steel production through green hydrogen and derivatives.
Under a joint development agreement (JDA), they will advance studies into two potential projects: the Saldanha green hydrogen and derivatives study which will explore the region’s potential as an export hub for green hydrogen and derivatives, as well as green steel production; and the Vaal carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) study to use renewable electricity and green hydrogen to convert captured carbon from ArcelorMittal South Africa’s Vanderbijlpark’s steel plant into sustainable fuels and chemicals.
In addition, Sasol signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Freeport Saldanha Industrial Development Zone to develop a globally competitive green hydrogen hub and ecosystem within Saldanha Bay.
Priscillah Mabelane, Executive Vice President for Sasol’s Energy Business, said the two projects hold promise in unlocking South Africa’s potential to be a global green hydrogen and derivatives player.
