With projects corresponding to a recently completed hydrogen production proof of concept (PoC) initiative in Vredendal within the Western Cape, it’s secure to say that South Africa is nicely on its method to producing green hydrogen as part of its renewable power posture.
To this end, the Chemical Industries Education and Training Authority (CHIETA) has embarked on an 18-month analysis project: A complete examine of hydrogen power in SA which will help us in our efforts to assist the Hydrogen Economy, identifying development areas for abilities and economic improvement.
The examine, which is already underway, is being conducted in partnership with research groups and is aimed at not only our personal skills growth targets but also authorities and corporations of all sizes within the chemical industries.
A comprehensive examine of hydrogen energy will give attention to:
The collection and analysis of paperwork, baseline information, and a literature evaluation on the state of the Hydrogen Economy in South Africa.
The production of a green hydrogen analysis report that responds to the project’s objectives.
We believe the project’s outcomes and suggestions won’t solely help government, via the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) and chemical sector firms, but in addition support the country’s Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan (ERRP).
Furthermore, we are engaged on a Green Hydrogen Skills Plan for our petrochemicals sub-sector. This will enable us to establish the top-10 skills within the green hydrogen economic system and close the hydrogen expertise hole by making certain that expertise is domestically produced.
It’s additionally encouraging to note that certainly one of our member companies, Sasol, is already taking half in a leading position in the green hydrogen financial system by way of its analysis partnership with the DSI and the Northern Cape Economic Development and Investment Promotion Agency (NCEDA). CHIETA will quickly be collaborating with NCEDA to ensure a well-coordinated and shared response to skills planning for the green hydrogen financial system.
The feasibility research for the manufacturing of green hydrogen within the Namakwa Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is being performed at Boegoebaai, a port positioned in the local municipality of Richtersveld. As our greatest member firm and largest abilities levy contributor, Sasol hopes to ascertain the port as a world centre for green hydrogen manufacturing.
Through tasks and initiatives similar to Sasol’s Boegoebaai research, a roadmap is being crafted that can stand the chemical business in good stead and place the nation as a worldwide chief within the production of green hydrogen energy.
CHIETA will also be actively pursuing a green hydrogen analysis chair place in collaboration with public establishments to advance excellence and innovation in green hydrogen for the lengthy run development of scarce abilities. We will be investing more than R 5 million into the CHIETA Green Hydrogen Research Chair as part of our rising funding into research and development.
As the chemical industry, we’ve a major position to play in what’s undoubtedly the subsequent step within the evolution of renewable power, not solely the continent, but throughout the globe.
