In an effort to accelerate the development of low-carbon solutions for the energy industry, the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (“Aramco”) launched the Aramco Research Center at KAUST (ARC KAUST) today.

This newly established research hub, strategically located within King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), specializes in using machine learning and artificial intelligence to develop low-carbon solutions and enable a Circular Carbon Economy.

Ahmad Al-Khowaiter, Aramco Chief Technology Officer, said: “The Aramco Research Center at 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.”

Scientists and engineers at ARC KAUST plan to develop new technologies in carbon capture, low-carbon hydrogen/ammonia, non-metallics, e-fuels, liquid-to-chemicals, and advanced transport technologies.

Aramco’s new center represents a significant milestone in its growth, offering opportunities for leveraging KAUST’s capabilities in areas such as supercomputing and big data analytics.
