Technology is changing the way modern geologists locate precious resources and harness energy. With supercomputers capable of processing geophysical data from all over the world, geologists are reconstructing models of the subsoil to identify hydrocarbon deposits. The efficiency of these powerful data processors can scan massive rock formations to help laboratories analyze geological systems. While today's modern geologists still have a compass and hammer to collect samples, petaflops of computing power are changing energy research at lightning speed.

In the southern Italian region of Basilicata, home to the Val d'Agri Oil Centre known as COVA, hydrocarbon processing has undergone a radical digital transformation. COVA boasts one of the world's first fully digitized hydrocarbon plants, but why? Two primary reasons: infrastructure and information. Val d'Agri has the largest onshore hydrocarbon deposit in mainland Europe. The site is expansive and highly advanced, and the plant features a sophisticated sensor system built to capture massive amounts of data. Maintenance checks, equipment monitoring, inspections and measurements are tracked in a fully integrated digital system designed to prevent corrosion and ensure cleaner, more sustainable natural gas processing.

Ice cream, picnics and beach balls are staples of summer at the beach. They are also sources of alarming oceanic pollution: plastic bottles, fishing lines, netting, cigarette butts, food wrappings and more are washing up on the world's beaches. The average cigarette butt takes 12 years to biodegrade, while a plastic bag takes up to 1,000 years. Can clean sand be a reality, or will waste be our legacy?

Is one bathing suit more ecological than another? In today's era of fast fashion, the fashion industry generates 5.7 pounds of waste per second and more than 1.5 trillion pounds of greenhouse gases per year. How can sustainable energy apply to swimwear? Enter the EcoBikini. New technology can reuse nylon from fish nets, used carpet, and scraps of fabric, reclaimed waste deposited on beaches.

The construction industry consumes 1/3 of the world's raw materials, and 40% of urban solid waste comes from the demolition of buildings. More than half of the world's construction waste ends up in landfills. How will cities of the future reduce building costs, recycle raw materials, and reduce C02 emissions to build the sustainable cities of tomorrow? The circular city has arrived.

Natural gas and renewables are highly complementary energy sources. Together, they are the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Because energy storage technology is not yet viable for fast-ramping energy generation, natural gas provides renewable energy like wind and solar with the flexible back-up power required to quickly respond to fluctuations in the power grid's supply and demand. Grid-scale battery technologies may not become available until 2040, and natural gas will provide crucial support to renewables until then.
