Cambridge Quantum Computing has agreed a multi-year partnership with global energy giant Total S.A. to develop quantum algorithms and quantum computing solutions for advanced carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies.
The collaboration will use CQC’s expertise in quantum computing and quantum chemistry, including the utilisation of the UK company’s industry-leading quantum chemistry platform ‘EUMEN’, to support and help develop Total’s CCUS R & D efforts.
Total S.A. is a French multinational integrated oil and gas company founded in 1924 and one of the seven ‘Supermajor’ oil companies in the world.
Ilyas Khan, CEO of CQC said: “We are very excited to be working with Total. This is a topic of critical importance for the future of the planet.
“Total has a proven long-term commitment to CCUS solutions, and we are confident that our work with them will lead to a meaningful contribution towards a cleaner and greener future.”
The announcement caps a period of significant developments for CQC, including investments from IBM and Honeywell; the launch of a quantum technologies cybersecurity platform ‘IronBridge’ at the recent RSA conference, partnerships with organisations like CERN and most recently a groundbreaking experiment that showed the world the first Natural Language Processing implementation on a quantum computer.
CQC is a world-leading quantum computing software company with over 60 scientists across offices in Cambridge, London, San Francisco area, Washington, DC and Tokyo.
It builds tools for the commercialisation of quantum technologies that will have a profound global impact.
