ADNOC’s historic record of global partnerships, operational capabilities, and technology application positions the company well for the energy transition. Technology is a key enabler of our net zero ambition. We are exploring and deploying technologies to enhance our emissions monitoring and making targeted interventions to reduce the carbon footprint of our operations.
In addition, we are accelerating our efforts to strengthen value chains for lower-carbon fuels to support industrial decarbonization. Almost 80% of our new technology and development activity is focused on sustainable growth projects, such as the harnessing of geothermal energy to power residential and industrial activities and the development of clean fuels such as green and blue hydrogen.
We have invested in a state-of-the-art ADNOC Research and Innovation Center (ADRIC). This 26,000m2 facility is designed to develop and deploy innovations that will transform, decarbonize, and future proof our operations. Researchers at the facility work closely with other scientists from Khalifa University and the Non-Metallic Innovation Center in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
We also help to nurture technological innovation at other academic institutions, including the Mohammed Bin Zayed University for Artificial Intelligence, UAE University, and the University of Manchester. We continue to partner with innovators, pioneers, and industry leaders to advance our net zero ambition.
