Sasol, Toyota build South African green hydrogen project


Sasol plans to develop the use of green hydrogen by fuel cell vehicles on a major South African freight route as the company examines ways to lower its own emissions.
Along with partner Toyota Motor Corp, it intends to develop a pilot project — using a key highway such as the N3 running between Durban and
Johannesburg — for heavy-duty, long-haul vehicles powered by hydrogen, Sasol said in a statement. Toyota expects to introduce a prototype truck, currently being developed in Japan, as soon as it’s available.
Sasol, a top emitter of greenhouse gases in South Africa, is working toward a 2030
target to reduce emissions from its operations by at least 10% from 2017 levels. Apart from initiatives around green hydrogen, it’s also part of a record procurement of renewable energy and is exploring the production of cleaner aviation fuel.
Hydrogen is being considered for Sasol’s existing operations, the Toyota partnership and potentially for export, Sasol CEO Fleetwood Grobler said in an interview.
