Carbon capture research travels the world

ExxonMobil is working with a leading expert in Genoa, Italy, to research how fuel cells could be used to efficiently capture carbon emissions.

University of Genoa professor Barbara Bosio’s research caught the attention of ExxonMobil fuel cell carbon capture researcher Tim Barckholtz in 2017. The teams soon began collaborating and recently published a groundbreaking paper in the peer-reviewed Journal of The Electrochemical Society on their findings. Ultimately, their aim is to figure out ways to use fuel cells to significantly reduce industrial emissions.

Take a look as Barckholtz and Bosio discuss their impactful fuel cell partnership.

Weve broken ground on CO2 storage for customers

We’ve broken ground on CO2 storage for customers

In southeast Texas, in a clearing surrounded by farmland, there’s a rig drilling a well for ExxonMobil. Nothing out of the ordinary in an area accustomed to oil and gas operations. But this well is anything but ordinary. And it isn’t for oil or gas operations.
