Sasol to consider replacing coal with hydrogen to lower fuel’s carbon footprint

December 21, 2019 |

In South Africa, Engineering News reports that energy and chemicals company Sasol is looking at a demo project to install Fischer-Tropsch assets with “green hydrogen” made from renewable energy and water using electrolysis.

According to Engineering News, Sasol uses coal and water right now in their hydrogen production, but since the company wants to lower their carbon emissions, using coal in the production method needs to be replaced with a greener alternative. “Sasol’s coal-to-liquids facility in Secunda, in Mpumalanga, is widely considered to be the world’s largest single-point CO2 emitter globally, with yearly emissions of 56-million tons,” according to Engineering News.
