Johannesburg, South Africa – Sasol is committed to reducing its overall impact on the environment and is developing and implementing on our climate change mitigation response to enable long-term resilience of the company through an updated strategy, Future Sasol and lower-carbon business operations. We are currently exploring different initiatives and projects with the intent of enabling technology development deployment to achieve large-scale greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions. Carbon dioxide (CO2) utilisation has been identified as a promising lever to reduce GHG emissions globally and has the potential to increase the implementation of carbon capture and utilisation technologies.
To progress our climate change ambitions for more resilient operations in South Africa, Sasol is inviting interested parties to participate in a Request for Information (RFI) process regarding the development and demonstration of CO2 utilisation technologies. Sasol aims to be an enabler for the development and demonstration of CO2 utilisation technologies and wants to partner with other companies to reduce GHG emissions at its South African operations based in Secunda, Mpumalanga and in Sasolburg, Free State. The closing date for submissions is 30 September 2020.
The purpose of this RFI process is to identify partners who are interested or involved in the use of CO2 utilisation technologies on CO2-rich streams. The scale of application for potential projects can range from demonstration level to commercial level.
Interested parties may apply for access to the RFI by forwarding their company profile together with contact details to: CO2utilisation@sasol.com.
Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts that relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects (including LCCP), oil and gas reserves and cost reductions, including in connection with our BPEP, RP and our business performance outlook. Words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend", “seek”, “will”, “plan”, “could”, “may”, “endeavour”, “target”, “forecast” and “project” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 28 August 2018 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
