The long-term vision of the HySA Infrastructure CoC is that, in selected applications, it will be a leading, well-established and internationally recognised Centre of Competence (CoC) for research and product development for hydrogen production, storage and distribution, addressing the specific needs of South Africa and gearing maximum participation to derive the full benefit of South African strategic reserves and capabilities. Through our activities we will contribute to the improvement of the competitiveness of the South African industry and the quality of life of all South Africans. We also believe that we will be able to contribute to the preparation of South Africa to participate in hydrogen-related applications, primarily by beneficiating its resource base in becoming a significant supplier of material, components, products, sub-systems and systems for export, as well as appropriate introduction of technology, related to hydrogen production, storage and distribution in the South African economy.
The mission of the HySA Infrastructure is to deliver technologies for hydrogen production (linked to renewable energy), storage and distribution. The overall aim is to become a significant player in the renewable hydrogen production and storage research and development ( R&D ), leading to the development and application of new products, hydrogen storage materials and processes which improve the competitiveness of South African industry and the quality of life of all South Africans. The scope of the Hydrogen Infrastructure Competency Centre (HySA Infrastructure CC) is to develop applications and solutions for small- and medium-scale hydrogen production through innovative research and development to promote beneficiation of Platinum Group Metals (PGM).
