Froneman tells world of Sibanye’s confidence in hydrogen economy

Platinum group metals (PGMs) are poised to be a very significant underpin in the green hydrogen economy and Sibanye-Stillwater is intent on ensuring that the supply of PGMs is sustainable and that the company is part of the global climate change solution, Sibanye CEO Neal Froneman told a global online conference on Friday. Addressing attendees in Tokyo, Beijing, Moscow, Johannesburg, London and New York, Froneman said that while PGMs continued to play their long-standing role of cleaning the air of their cities through their presence in the autocatalysis systems of the exhausts of internal combustion engine vehicles, the metals would experience a slight change in demand in the medium-to-long-term as they catalysed hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen-generating electrolysers in the world’s advance zero-emission.
