Philippe UngererThe Grenelle Environment Forum has strengthened awareness of the need to cut emissions of greenhouse gases and atmospheric pollutants.

This second issue of Science@ifp highlights scientific advances that will contribute to this. For example, low-temperature combustion in the new diesel engines reduces both the fuel consumption and the particulates emissions of automotive vehicles. Again, the molecular modelling tools developed by IFP and its academic partners are contributing to knowledge of the phase equilibriums relevant to the storage of CO2 in underground reservoirs.

As the other items show, in order to ensure a smooth energy transition, IFP also continues its work to improve oil technologies in exploration, production, and refining, which will remain essential to ensuring our energy supplies for a long time to come.
