One-of-a-kind partners working on breakthrough innovations

No single company, organization or institution has all the answers when it comes to developing tomorrow’s low-emission energy. That’s why global energy company ExxonMobil is partnering with a range of organizations – including a leading biotechnology company to develop next-generation biofuels and a boutique technology company looking to vacuum carbon dioxide straight from the sky.

At first glance, they may not seem to be obvious choices, but these unique partnerships spark the type of innovations needed to develop tomorrow’s lower-emission energy.

As well as working with companies to develop promising technologies, ExxonMobil is collaborating with over 80 universities and five energy centers. These partnerships bring together scientists and engineers from diverse backgrounds to work on the ambitious goal of developing affordable, reliable and scalable lower-emission technologies.

Watch our latest video for a sampling of these partnerships and the work being done to develop tomorrow’s energy innovations.

From farm leftovers to biofuel

From farm leftovers to biofuel

Imagine turning agricultural leftovers into low-emission biofuel. That is, taking plant parts like inedible cornstalks and fueling our cars, trucks, boats and planes. ExxonMobil and its partners at Clariant and Genomatica are working together as part of an ambitious research program to do just that.
