BCG predicts high impact of quantum computing on catalysts related to mitigating climate change
Updated: May 8, 2020
BCG has published an article discussing how quantum computing can help accelerate the development of zero-emissions technologies and while reducing emissions in legacy industries. The authors state the advantages of quantum computing for developing new catalysts can be realized in the NISQ era.
Without strong legislation, the development of clean technologies will play a key role in mitigating climate change and transitioning to a greener economy. The article considers that the highest impact and shorter term gains will be felt most in new catalyst development for areas such as fertilizers, energy production & storage, and carbon capture which incidentally, is pine.ly’s mission.
The article also highlighted the quantum computing talent shortage. There are only a few thousand scientists worldwide and the time to adequately train someone in quantum computing is comparatively long.
