New techniques could harness the power of quantum computing for carbon capture

New techniques could harness the power of quantum computing for carbon capture

April 3, 2022 |

In California, in a research paper released by Quantinuum in collaboration with TotalEnergies, a quantum algorithm accurately modeled carbon capture in metal organic frameworks (MOFs). The new techniques break down the complex molecular interactions of carbon dioxide with MOFs for simulation on a quantum computer. The scientists believe these techniques will accelerate progress on developing […]
