Current efforts to reduce global CO2 emissions are not enough to prevent catastrophic climate change. A growing consensus concludes that directly removing carbon dioxide from our atmosphere, oceans, and ecosystems is necessary.
To address this global grand challenge, XPRIZE is excited to officially kick-off the design process for our new Carbon Removal Prize Design. The goal of this prize will be to accelerate breakthroughs to catalyze action to fight climate change.
We currently are in the ideation stage at this point for a competition whose aim will be to achieve breakthroughs either in technology or via innovation that will lead to a method of CO2 removal at scale from either the atmosphere and/or oceans.
The final product of this process of researching and discussions, the Prize Design, will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize.
The community is currently debating the challenges and opportunities associated with carbon removal.
We invite you to join us and other experts from around the world to share your wisdom with the crowd and advise us on the Carbon Removal Prize Design!
