We are excited to announce that 10 teams from five countries have moved forward into the finals for the $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE. These finalists range from entrepreneurs and start-ups to academic institutions and companies that have been tackling the challenge for more than a decade. They represent an incredible diversity of approaches to turn waste (CO2 emissions) into a wide variety of valuable products, such as enhanced concrete, liquid fuels, plastics and carbon fiber. These innovators are ushering in the circular carbon economy by turning carbon from a liability into an asset. It’s this spirit of innovation that will help us take action on climate.
