The company's Secunda Operations are the core of Sasol's Southern African Operations, producing a wide range of petroleum products including diesel, petrol and jet fuel, as well as chemical products which include ethylene, propylene and ammonia value chains. The operations contribute to job creation, sustainable development and security of supply in chemicals and energy. The site is host to the following businesses and operating hubs: Sasol Mining, Secunda Synfuels Operations, Secunda Chemicals Operations and Sasol Energy. Sasol Mining operates ve coal mines in Mpumalanga that supply feedstock for the Secunda Synfuels Operations complex. The coal is mainly used as gasication feedstock and to generate electricity. As some of these mines are approaching the end of their useful lives, new developments are underway to ensure continued supply through the company's Mine replacement programme. Secunda Synfuels Operations is a large-scale coal-and-gas-based synthetic fuels manufacturing facility, applying the unique Fischer-Tropsch technology. This operating hub also produces utilities, such as oxygen and steam for the Secunda site, required in the production process and generates about half of its own electricity. Secunda Chemicals Operations is a large-scale integrated chemical product manufacturing facility that produces and adds further value to the Sasol chemicals value chains. Secunda Chemicals Operations also provides Sites Services, Infrastructure Maintenance and Product Logistics Services for the Secunda site. The Energy Business, that is key to Sasol's growth aspirations inside and outside South Africa, manages the marketing and sales of all oil, gas and electricity products in Southern Africa. As an active corporate citizen, Sasol meaningfully invests in communities close to its operations with the main objective of sustainably contributing to the broader socio-economic development of the Mpumalanga province as well as South Africa.
