Transforming CO₂ into valuable products
The $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE is a global competition to develop breakthrough technologies that will convert CO₂ emissions from power plants and industrial facilities into valuable products like building materials, alternative fuels and other items that we use every day.
Reimagining CO₂ for
The NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE inspires development of new and emerging CO₂ conversion technologies to help solve climate change.
Solutions are already exciting, especially the unexpected range and diversity of technologies and products under development. Teams are trying to make everything from carbon fiber, to fish food, 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.
