Domestic green hydrogen production could possibly revive ArcelorMittal's steel operations in Saldanha Bay, while also assisting in decarbonising public transport from MyCiTi and Prasa's Metrorail, a study shows.

The study, dated January 2022, which was commissioned by the European Union Delegation to South Africa and conducted by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), looks into stimulating domestic hydrogen consumption opportunities in South Africa.

It follows on a previous study released in February 2021, which investigated opportunities for South Africa to produce power fuels using green hydrogen.
