    Sanedi expects R300bn investment into SA green hydrogen by Japanese companies

    Japanese companies are expected to invest up to R300 billion in South Africa's green hydrogen economy over the next few years. With South Africa having 70% of the world's platinum-group metals, which are crucial for hydrogen technology, the two countries' collaboration is essential for advancing large-scale hydrogen technology development. The partnership aims to establish a value chain from PGM mining to the production of technology and products for local and export markets, enhancing South Africa's hydrogen sector through local beneficiation.
