The group returned to the hall where the members of the Committee were received in the morning by the management of Sasol. Sasol appreciated the visit by the Committee and saw the need for further engagements with DEA, especially on offsets. Mr Hermann Wenhold, speaking for Sasol, indicated that Sasol should be able to comply with 70 per cent point source pollution, but not the 30 per cent, which posed a technological challenge. He thanked the members of the Portfolio Committee and staff, DEA staff and Sasol staff for organising the visit by the Committee. Mr Wenhold also wished the Chairperson of the Committee, Hon Mr Mthembu well and speedy recovery. On the other hand, the Acting Chairperson of the Committee Hon Mr Mabilo acknowledged Sasol's contribution to the socioeconomic development of South Africa as well as the entire southern African sub-region. He also underscored Sasol's massive investment in infrastructural development, technology and innovation, which places the company among the best in its niche area of operation. Notwithstanding, Hon Mr Mabilo encouraged Sasol to do its uttermost in complying with the air quality law, as laws are formulated to be adhered to at all times, rather than at times that are convenient to companies. Thereafter, lunch was served and a group photograph of MPs and Sasol officials was taken. Finally, the parliamentary delegation left Secunda for Eskom's Kendal Power Station.
