Energy company ExxonMobil announced Friday that it recently broke ground on a project to expand its Clinton, NJ research and engineering center, offering the company greater opportunities to conduct R&D.
“The expansion of our New Jersey research and engineering center will improve collaboration across our organization and enhance our ability to accelerate breakthroughs in new and emerging technologies,” Bruce March, president of ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company, said in a statement. “By co-locating our research and development 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.”
The expansion, slated for completion in 2019, will include a new engine testing center, a lubricant and research and development blend plant, and advanced algae biofuel and carbon capture technologies.
“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,” said Vijay Swarup, vice president of research and development at ExxonMobil, in a company press release. “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.”
ExxonMobil said some employees from its Paulsboro, NJ research facility will be relocated to Clinton when the project draws to a close.
