Sasol created a specially designated company, Sasol Infrachem, with a R2 billion plus annual budget, to abstract river water, treat sewage, purify effluent and even reticulate electricity at cost price. In effect, it has become an industrial municipality for Sasolburg’s community and for other industries in the area. It is also involved in rejuvenation of the local area and promotes entrepreneurship in the local Zamdela township.
Other large companies in the area around Sasolburg include:
