Sasol, a chemicals and energy company, has started its C3 expansion project in Secunda, Mpumalanga province of South Africa to increase its polypropylene production capacity by 103,000 tons per annum. The R1 billion ($71 million) capital investment is part of the company's dual-regional, multi-asset hub growth strategy in Southern Africa and North America.

The South African chemical company is also working on reducing the environmental impact, while increasing production capacity with its propylene plant. The project took about three years to complete.

“This particular investment further entrenches Sasol as a global chemicals player. With more than R1 billion invested, we are proud to unveil yet another major capital investment in South Africa, our home,” said Stephen Cornell, joint president and chief executive officer, Sasol Limited.

Polypropylene is one of the world's most widely used petrochemical products. A versatile polymer, the product has a variety of applications which include packaging for consumer products, plastic parts for various industries including the automotive industry, and textiles. The chemical serves double duty both as a plastic and as a fibre. (KD)
