$20 million Carbon XPRIZE is announced
NRG, COSIA and @XPRIZE are teaming up to find a cost-efficient way to transform CO2 emissions into valuable products.
The $20M Carbon XPRIZE will challenge teams from all around the world to develop innovative approaches to convert CO2 emissions from fossil fuels into valuable products. This will include a broad suite of solutions, some radically new and some already in the early stages of development, such as:
- Alternative cement, concrete and
other building materials
- Chemicals used to manufacture a
variety of industrial products and
- Low-carbon transportation fuels
Registration for the challenge runs from September 2015 to March 2016.
