More cost-efficient work, careful use of valuable resources, environmentally friendly processes, and new, groundbreaking materials – this is the future potential of the novel Quantum Computing technology. It is expected to revolutionize research and development in the chemical industry. Covestro is committed to expand its innovation leadership with quantum computing. That is why the company is building up resources and cooperations.
Covestro pushes Quantum Computing technology in Leverkusen
Covestro entered into a partnership with Google in 2020. Its research will focus on the development of fundamental algorithms. They are the basis for carrying out complex simulations at much higher speeds than with conventional computers. Quantum computing is an important milestone for Covestro. This trend-setting technology can further accelerate the transformation in production. A team from Leverkusen is currently in the process of researching how quantum computing can help drive the Circular Economy forward.
Covestro has been investing heavily in digital research and development since 2016, and most recently in the expansion of its computing capacity. The high-performance computing heart for digital research is located in Leverkusen and will be continuously expanded until the end of 2020.
