Sasol senior management Dr Sven Godorr, Manager of Research & Development, Sasol Technology, and Mr Johann Nel, Manager of Technology Contracting at Sasol, visited the UFS on 8 June 2009 to sign the overarching agreement between SASOL and the UFS regarding contract work and students being trained with SASOL support. Currently, these SASOL supported projects at the UFS are primarily supervised by Prof. Ben Bezuidenhoudt, SASOL seconded professor in Organic Chemistry, Prof. Jannie Swarts, Head of Physical Chemistry Division and Prof. André Roodt, Head of Inorganic Division and Chairperson of the Chemistry Department. The signatories from the UFS were Prof. Teuns Verschoor, Acting Rector and Vice-Chancellor and Prof. Herman van Schalkwyk, Dean of Natural and Agricultural Sciences. This agreement forms part of the SASOL-supported and UFS senior management's revitalisation of Chemistry to more than R100 million over the past four and half years.
