Riyadh – Mubasher: Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Aramco) has opened Aramco Research Center at KAUST (ARC KAUST) to fast-track the development of low-carbon solutions for the energy sector through the use of advanced analytics.

The research hub, which was inaugurated on 27 June 2022, is located within the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), according to a press release.

ARC KAUST utilises artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to create innovative meathods to advance low-carbon solutions while enabling a circular carbon economy.

Aramco Chief Technology Officer, Ahmad Al Khowaiter, said: “[ARC KAUST] offers a unique opportunity to strengthen our collaboration with KAUST and accelerate the development of cutting-edge technologies that will contribute to a low-carbon future.”

Al Khowaiter noted: “Today energy companies face the dual challenge of delivering sustainability and reliability. The critical research undertaken at this new facility will help us meet our obligations to customers and energy consumers worldwide, while also supporting our ambition of reaching operational net-zero emissions by 2050.”

Earlier this year, Aramco teamed up with KAUST and Hyundai Motor Group for the research and development of an advanced fuel for an ultra-lean burn engine to reduce carbon emissions.
