“The petrochemical area of Syracuse can and must play a key role in the energy transition. Especially in that process of gradual and progressive decarbonisation that passes not only through electrification but also through alternative technologies such as low-carbon liquid fuels or energy vectors such as hydrogen. In this context, the skills of our personnel, which have been a strategic national asset for 70 years, must be enhanced in order to act as a driving force for development.Rosario Pistorio, CEO of SRI
“This activity, marks another exciting step towards a sustainable future, confirming the process of collaboration initiated with our partners to create value and develop innovative solutions for a better and increasingly sustainable world. This announcement also underscores our interest in making hydrogen a key element of Sasol’s sustainability journey”.Sergio Corso, Vice President Operations Sasol Italy,
