Capgemini partners with DARPA to explore quantum computing for carbon capture

Capgemini Government Solutions has launched a new initiative with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to investigate quantum computing’s potential in carbon capture.

The initiative, part of DARPA’s Advanced Research Concepts (ARC) topic, “Imagining Practical Applications for a Quantum Tomorrow” (IMPAQT), aims to explore quantum algorithms. Capgemini will focus on understanding the predictive features of materials using quantum simulation, which can be applied to carbon capture and storage.

The research aims to better understand the predictive features of materials by leveraging quantum simulation. The results can be used in data-driven modeling for applications such as carbon capture and storage.
