CQC, Total collaborate to develop quantum algorithms for CCUS

oil 1685981 640Software company Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) has entered into a multi-year partnership with petroleum refining company 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 CQC’s industry-leading quantum chemistry platform ‘EUMEN’, to support and help develop Total’s CCUS R&D efforts.

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.
