Cambridge Quantum and Total Announce Multi-Year Collaboration

Developing Quantum Algorithms for Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS)

This multi-year partnership with Total S.A. will focus on developing quantum algorithms and quantum computing solutions for advanced carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies.

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.
