CLINTON, US: ExxonMobil Corporation has broken ground on the expansion of its research facility in Clinton, New Jersey, a key centre of innovation that supports the company’s broad research and development programs.

Expansion of the facility, home to ExxonMobil’s fundamental and process research and development, including advancing algae biofuel and carbon capture technologies, is expected to be completed in 2019 and will include employees relocating from its research facility in Paulsboro, New Jersey.

ExxonMobil is engaged in a broad range of programs and partnerships focused on developing scalable, energy solutions to meet global demand while minimizing environmental impacts and mitigating the risk of climate change.

The expanded facility in Clinton will include a new engine testing centre, a lubricant research and development blend plant, and enhancements to existing facilities to accommodate employees relocating from Paulsboro.

“The expansion of our New Jersey research and engineering centre will improve collaboration across our organization and enhance our ability to accelerate breakthroughs in new and emerging technologies,” said Bruce March, president of ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company.

“By co-locating our R&D and products technology organizations in Clinton, we expect to bring potential new technologies online faster and at the scale necessary to meet the world’s growing needs for energy,” he added.

“Our research addresses key elements of the dual challenge we currently face, which means supplying energy for modern life and improving living standards while minimizing impacts on the environment, including the risks of climate change. By consolidating our research capabilities under one roof and fully leveraging the expertise in all of our departments, we hope to develop scalable solutions that drive both long-term shareholder and societal value,” concluded Vijay Swarup, vice president of research and development, ExxonMobil.
