Sasol at COP27

Sasol is attending COP27 in support of the South African government and its climate change goals. We are committed to a net zero emissions goal by 2050 and we’re positioned to play a leading role in enabling Southern Africa’s energy transition.

In demonstrating our commitment to the call for greater ambition, we are striving for a net zero emissions ambition by 2050, supported by emission reduction roadmaps and a mid-term target of 30% emission reduction by 2030.

As an Energy Champion in South Africa, we are leading the development of the green hydrogen and gas economy and spurring the acceleration of renewables deployment in the country. Local demand will be a critical enabler to anchor green hydrogen export opportunities for the region. To support incubation of local demand, we are advancing a number of catalytic projects that will stimulate the development of the Southern Africa hydrogen economy in partnership with public and private sector entities.

 

 

We have established several partnerships, with a number of organisations including Central Energy Fund (CEF), Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), Imperial, Toyota, ArcelorMittal and ITOCHU, focusing on the development and acceleration of the hydrogen economy.

 

Technology

Sasol is the world leader in Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology with demonstrated innovation and operational experience. Our unique FT technologies can be used in the conversion of CO2 and green hydrogen into a multitude of sustainable chemicals and fuel products.

We have the largest capacity in FT technology in the world, and a strong portfolio of FT-related patents.

Sasol launched an exciting new business, Sasol ecoFT, leveraging our 70-year long expertise in Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology to produce low carbon sustainable fuels and chemicals globally. While our technology will serve a range of sustainable product markets, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is the application, where we can make a substantial difference, today, in this hard to abate industry sector. Industry and others, including environmental groups, consider SAF as the largest contributor to reduce GHG emissions in the aviation sector, especially for the medium and long-haul flights.
