Sasol (JSE: SOL, NYSE SSL) and Uzbekistan GTL’s ongoing cooperation took a significant step forward with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the supply of Low Temperature Fischer Tropsch TM (LTFT™) catalysts.
The signing took place during Baku Energy Week, one of most prestigious events in the energy sector in the Caspian region, held in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.
The MOU builds on the initial 2018 catalyst supply agreement between Sasol and Uzbekistan GTL and includes technical support by Sasol, as well as the supply of a next generation catalyst.
“The MOU is an important milestone in our cooperation with Uzbekistan GTL and underpins their trust in our Fischer Tropsch catalyst and our technology leadership in this field,” said Dr Cronje Grove, Vice President of Advanced Materials, Sasol Chemicals.
Sasol Chemicals’ leading position in the GTL catalyst field is highlighted by the recent establishment of the CARE-O-SENE consortium focused on the development and production of future generation catalysts.
These new catalysts will further improve product yield with the same resource input/optimized resource use and will also reduce costs for our customers. The CARE-O-SENE project will be funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and Sasol.
