Adding Value and Diversifying Products

Improving the quality and performance of our products, diversifying our portfolio: these are important drivers of our activities. We are always researching how to make our fuels and lubricants more efficient and how the petrochemical and gas chemical industries can make the most of the oil and natural gas we extract. Even minor discoveries can lead to major savings and improve air quality.

Energy of the future

We are also gearing up for the energy of the future. Who would have ever thought, but a few years ago, that sugarcane bagasse could be turned into energy? Thus, we research possibilities that are yet unknown, but which one day will be part of our everyday lives.
