Coal Fuel Producer To Build Plants All Over the World

Sasol, the world's biggest producer of motor fuel from coal

Sasol, the world's biggest producer of motor fuel from coal, is negotiating with Iran's government over the construction of a gas-to-liquid fuel plant, South Africa's foreign minister said.

"Negotiations between Sasol, PetroSA and the Iranian government for a gas-to-liquid plant in Iran are far in advance," Foreign Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma told journalists in Pretoria on Monday.

Sasol is considering building two coal-to-fuel plants in China at a cost of $5 billion each. It may expand its coal and gas-to-fuel production in South Africa by 20 percent over the next 10 years and plans to complete a gas-to-fuel plant in Nigeria and expand one in Qatar and Mozambique.
