Competing and winning

Since 1995, the Repsol and Honda techies and researchers have been working together and sharing knowledge, season after season, to achieve the greatest sporting success of any motorcycle racing team in history. 

At Repsol, we transform these victories on the track into the products we sell, as the team dedicated to working in top-flight competition is also responsible for designing the fuels and lubricants that reach the market.

  • A subsoil challenge

    Technology enables us to explore underwater and underground in a way that is ever more careful and sustainable every day. We develop technologies to teach a supercomputer how to think, to get a glimpse of the subsoil without drilling, and to detect underwater leaks in record time.

A supercomputer on the Repsol Team

Hilario Martín is a scientist who's participated in a milestone in the world of hydrocarbons: teaching a supercomputer to perform a task which the human brain is not capable of. Processing millions of political, financial, economic, geological, environmental data units…and drawing conclusions in real time.

Computer chips to explore underground

With the Kaleidoscope Project, we can locate reservoirs 15 times faster than the industry average. We do this with computer chips that enable us to see the subsoil without drilling into it.

Thanks to digital technology, we can explore the subsoil using millimetric or nanometric rock samples, without drilling into it. Sherlock and Sherlock II are pioneering projects in Europe.

Detecting leaks in two minutes

We are now able to detect any incidents in underwater oil extraction in under two minutes. The Heads Project is reliable, fast, and accurate safety system.

The smallest things can be the most sustainable

With the Sónar Project, we have shown how nano-technology can aid the oil industry to create eco-friendly asphalts, more sustainable refineries, and more efficient solar panels.
  • A world in motion

  • Efficient vehicles

    At Repsol, we conduct research to create more efficient vehicles. We build prototypes of the future that combine various sources of energy, we promote the use of Autogas, and we work daily on the recharge system for electric cars.

Spain 2017 or the vehicle of the future

Spain 2017 is a composite of types of energy. We have combined chemical energy, thermal energy, and electricity in an engine system which achieves the best possible reduction of emissions of CO2 and complies with the legal limits set for 2050.

A more sustainable fuel

At Repsol, we are committed to finding advanced solutions for transportation, sustainable development, and future technology. AutoGas is the most popular alternative fuel worldwide because it allows for fuel savings of up to 40%.

Innovative technologies and materials

At the Repsol Technology Center, we invent processes, techniques, and materials that enable us to create safer roads, more effective greenhouses, plastics that last longer and pollute less – we even mimic proteins.

Smart Asphalts

Francisco Guisado collaborated in formulating a depolluting asphalt capable of sequestering mono-nitrogen oxides (NOx). It is only one of our smart asphalts, which can repair themselves, remove pollution from the air, and change their shape, among other abilities.
Plásticos que funcionan

Plastics that work

At the Repsol Technology Center, we are creating new formulas for plastics that enable food to be grown in greenhouses in any location at any time of the year. We are also formulating plastics to keep food from spoiling for up to three years.

We transform CO2 into useful items

Reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions is an aim for the future and a legal requirement established by the European Union. At Repsol, we are researching processes and techniques to sequester CO2 and transform it into financially profitable products.

Optimal refineries

At Repsol, we work to ensure our refineries have the smallest environmental impact possible. The five refineries in Spain work in a network, as if they were one.

Imitating nature

Nature is a source of inspiration for technological innovation. At the Repsol Technology Center, we observe proteins, bacteria, and fungi to use them to improve the quality of fuels and minimize their environmental impact.
