Sasol will be leading a feasibility study to explore the potential of the Boegoebaai project in South Africa as an export hub for green hydrogen and ammonia. The study which is expected to be concluded in two years will determine the project’s next move.
Under a memorandum of cooperation signed between Sasol and the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa (IDC), both the companies will work together to advance the green hydrogen economy in South Africa.
Sasol will be joining Linde, Enertrag and Navitas to explore the potential of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), an initiative supported by the German Government’s H2 Global auction platform. Together with its partners, Sasol plans to carry out feasibility studies regarding the production of SAF at its Secunda Synfuels plant in South Africa.

The new explosives joint venture firm Enaex Africa has been formed due to the growth potential of Sasol’s explosives business in the region. The newly established company began its operations on July 1, 2020.
