SA Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage
SACCCS a division of SANEDI is mandated by the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) to build needed technical capacity in the field of Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) to prepare for the implementation of CCUS in South Africa. SANEDI commenced with the preparation for the Pilot CO 2 Storage Project, which is currently ongoing. In parallel with the research into geological sequestration, SANEDI is also investigating South Africa’s potential for capture and utilization of CO 2 Read More. Read More...
Advocacy and Communication
For CCUS to be fully considered as part of South Africa’s energy strategy, and climate change mitigation actions, the Centre is committed to engaging stakeholders and providing them with information about the basic principles around the CCUS technology as well as benefits and potential risks of its application. The engagement of stakeholders and advocating for CCUS implementation enables joint research, capacity building thus transferring knowledge of the technology, as well as promotes public-private partnerships and collaboration Read More
Dear Valued Stakeholder
Following President Cyril Ramaphosa’s call for responsible social distancing to try and flatten the curve. As the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to spread across South Africa and remains at the top of the agenda for businesses nationally and internationally SANEDI has put measures in place for the safety of our employees and stakeholders. We have implemented a work from home protocol, allowing all our employees to work from home for business continuity and staying safe. Our office will remain open. This arrangement is effective from Thursday, 26 March.
Our office is monitoring the outbreak and its impact on our employees and stakeholders. Please be assured that during this time of risk mitigation the SANEDI – CCUS services will remain unaffected unless constrained by social distancing requirements.
