Geo-Energy Systems and Subsurface Technologies
We support the research and development of advanced technologies for the sustainable use of the deep subsurface. These include exploration & production of hydrocarbons and REE & lithium, for storage of natural gas and hydrogen, and for geothermal energy. Our partners include E&P companies, storage operators, service companies, universities and research institutions.
Currently, we are tackling the very big task of reducing petroleum and other fossil carbon carriers in petrochemicals and replacing them completely in the long term. There are many ways or building blocks to achieve this goal, such as the use of renewable raw materials and the development of recyclable plastics.
Conversion of Carbon Carriers
Carbon is chemically a very special atom, it has the ability to form complex molecules and has the greatest variety of chemical compounds of all chemical elements. This property makes carbon and its compounds the basis of life on earth and a major component of our everyday life.
