Project Title: Applications for Postponement of certain requirements of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act No 39 of 2004 minimum Emissions Standards for Sasol South Africa Limited (Sasol) operating through its Secunda Synfuels Operations (SSO).
   
Project Synopsis: Sasol South Africa Limited (Sasol) operating through its its Secunda Synfuels Operations (SSO) in Secunda owns and operates a petrochemical facility in the Sasol Secunda complex south of central Secunda, Mpumalanga, among others. Sasol is required to comply with Minimum Emission Standards, 2013 (MES), published in terms of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act (Act No 39 of 2004).
Sasol fully intends to meet the MES and has implemented a number of initiatives to do so. However, during SSO’s recent AEL renewal process an extensive due diligence exercise was conducted and in the course of reviewing its Secunda facility against the conditions of SSO’s previous AEL, certain additional point sources were identified that form part of existing listed activities recorded in the SSO AEL.  Preliminary baseline emission monitoring and measurement results suggest that SSO may not be able to meet certain of the MES new plant standards in relation to volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and carbon monoxide (CO) for some of the additional point sources.  
Sasol therefore intends to apply for postponement of compliance timeframes, as provided for in the MES, for the following sources:
•    The Waste Recycling facility
•    Coal Tar Filtration stack
•    Phenosolvan depitcher
•    sand filter vents.
