The technology in every bottle

At ExxonMobil™, we have a separate company dedicated to research. ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company (EMRE) continues to push the boundaries of fuel and lubricant product research to enable innovation. Our goal is to keep providing protection and enhanced performance for our customers’ vehicles and equipment.

In our state-of-the-art facilities in Clinton (Iowa , USA), top engineers work in world-class laboratories developing new products and continually performance-testing and refining the entire range of ExxonMobil products. These chemists and engineers work with the latest rigs, engines and vehicle-testing capabilities to understand real-world operating conditions. They are also dedicated to experimentation, leading to new materials and new product discovery. Our team is unified by its:
• Passion for technological innovation
• Focus on quality and product integrity
• Drive to help solve global energy challenges with commercial products
• Cutting-edge automotive performance

Experience counts

Our success in developing winning lubricant formulations for worldwide markets comes partly from challenging our products on the world’s toughest proving grounds. For instance, we have worked for years to develop fuels and lubricants for global motorsports teams, including Formula 1 teams, giving us the challenging test environment we need to make game-changing innovations.

Leading the way in synthetic lubricant technology

Our advanced synthetic formulations are a testament to our expertise in developing proprietary, state-of-the-art lubricants for passenger vehicle engines as well as for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. As engine and vehicle technologies evolve and improve, our research and development teams are right there – creating and enhancing our synthetic lubricants to provide fully balanced formulations that ensure outstanding engine protection and performance.

ExxonMobil’s research and development initiatives are broad and far-reaching. We serve a worldwide market with fuel and oil products that are used in light- and heavy-duty vehicles, construction and mining equipment, marine vessels, the energy industry, manufacturing equipment, forestry, industrial processes, metals production, and aviation and aerospace applications.
