The collaboration will use Cambridge Quantum’s expertise in quantum computing and quantum chemistry, including the utilisation of Cambridge Quantum’s industry-leading quantum chemistry platform EUMEN, to support and help develop Total’s CCUS Research and Development efforts.
Ilyas Khan, CEO of Cambridge Quantum 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 Cambridge Quantum, 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.
