Turning CO₂ Into Products
The $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE develops breakthrough technologies to convert CO₂ emissions into usable products.
Reimagining CO₂ for
The NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE inspires development of new and emerging CO₂ conversion technologies to help solve climate change.
THE DIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCTS IS REALLY EXCITING. TEAMS ARE TRYING TO MAKE EVERYTHING FROM CARBON FIBER, TO TOOTHPASTE, TO BUILDING BLOCKS.
The Grand Challenge
However, most of this energy comes from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas that account for a majority of global carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions. We know that CO₂ emissions are a leading contributor to climate change, and the world will need a portfolio of solutions to address it.
How to Win
1. How much CO₂ they convert
2. The net value of their products
