Commitment to research and development is strategic to meet the challenge of the energy transition. From new ideas and knowledge, tested and developed in cooperation with important scientific and industrial partners, we want to generate cutting-edge solutions to speed up the progress towards our goal of Net Zero by 2050.
Eni's research follows three main lines:
- Renewables and new types of energy, to support the development of renewable energy and energy storage and, in parallel, to develop breakthrough technologies such as magnetic confinement fusion.
- Decarbonised solutions to reduce, capture, transform or store CO2, increasing energy efficiency, reducing emissions and promoting low-carbon energy carriers such as hydrogen and methanol.
- Circular economy and bio-based products: to reduce, recycle and reuse products and by-products, transforming waste into value-added products for biorefineries, sustainable mobility and renewable chemistry.
A further line concerns Operational Excellence, i.e. the development of technologies to achieve the highest level of efficiency and safety with minimum environmental impact, while reducing costs and time to market.
