Applications due for $20 Million prize offered by Wyoming ITC

Applications due for $20 Million prize offered by Wyoming ITC

The deadline is quickly approaching (July 15) for teams to apply to compete in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE global competition – a $20 million race to develop breakthrough technologies that will convert carbon emissions from power plants and industrial facilities into valuable products like building materials, alternative fuels and other items that we use every day. “What the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE is incentivizing is turning a waste product into an asset, something we can sell,” said Jason Begger, Executive Director of the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority. “If we can convert something that is a liability into a meaningful product that can be bought and sold, we can not only reduce emissions, but help, ultimately, drive down costs for consumers by creating a secondary market for energy production.” Interested in applying or learning more?
