Sasol, Haldor Topsoe expand G2LTM licensing collaboration to grow sustainable synthetic fuels and chemicals globally
JOHANNESBURG, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Haldor Topsoe and Sasol have expanded collaboration to jointly license and 
develop their technologies for sustainable liquid fuels and chemicals 
production through Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology. 

Sasol and Topsoe currently offer integrated end-to-end solutions to produce 
synthetic fuels and chemicals. Topsoe's SynCOR[TM] and Sasol's Low Temperature 
Fischer-TropschTM technologies have been licensed into Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) 
ventures, most recently Uzbekistan GTL, which is in the final stages of 

Building on this solid technology and operational foundation, Sasol and Topsoe 
now offer integrated end-to-end solutions to produce sustainable fuels and 
chemicals, specifically Power-to-Fuels or e-Fuels, utilising sustainable carbon 
sources or CO2, green hydrogen and renewable energy. 

"We need to make cleaner alternatives for the future transportation fuels. This 
new initiative builds on an already successful partnership with Sasol, and we 
are excited, that we are now taking it to the next level by offering our 
technologies together in an integrated way as a single point license for the 
production of sustainable synthetic fuels," says Fei Chen, SVP Clean Fuels & 
Chemicals Technology, Haldor Topsoe.

Marius Brand, Executive Vice President for Sasol 2.0 Transformation added: 
"Sasol and Haldor Topsoe's technology relationship spans more than two decades, 
through which a number of world first technologies were deployed, world-scale 
units were built and successfully operated. We believe this platform provides a 
solid foundation to offer solutions to the world and drive towards a 
sustainable future, specifically for the hard to abate sectors, such as the 
aviation industry. This technology collaboration is a key element supporting 
our purpose to innovate for a better world. Our partnership and Sasol's 
undisputed leadership in FT technology, positions us well to grow a low carbon 
products business globally, harnessing renewable resources to produce 
sustainable fuels and chemicals."

In addition, new technologies are being developed, such as Topsoe's electrified 
reforming platform (e-Reforming and e-Reverse Water Gas Shift), solid oxide 
electrolysis and Sasol's next generation FT catalyst to further maximise 
desired product yields, enhance carbon and hydrogen conversion efficiency, 
ultimately helping to eliminate fuel and chemical greenhouse gas emissions.

This gives potential customers access to an integrated solution across the 
entire value chain, from renewable feed sources to liquid fuels. As 
single-point licensor, Sasol and Topsoe will offer customers all the necessary 
technology licenses for complete sustainable fuels solutions. This also 
includes basic engineering, catalyst, hardware and specialised technical 
support to ensure a bankable and successful project.
