Carbon Removal XPrize
On the 29th of April the guideline for the Carbon Removal Xprize (from Elon Musk) was launched. The XPrize for Carbon Removal has a student team award with a total award of US$5M. Student teams can send in their proposals until the first of October 2021.
The 4TU.Federation is looking for passionate Technische Universiteit Delft students and PhD’s who want to tackle the problem of climate change and who are eager to contribute to reducing CO2. Any carbon negative project is eligible to win prize money provided it removes CO2 from the air or oceans, and sequesters it in a sustainable way. Teams may compete in any of the major carbon removal pathways or some combination of the pathways.
The 4TU. Federation is organising an exciting information session about the XPrize, which will take place on Thursday the 20th of May from 17:00-20:00.
During the information session there will be several speakers:
- Andrea Ramirez, TU Delft professor and former jury member of an XPrize challenge.
- Douwe Dresscher (UT), a current participant in another Xprize challenge.
- Carbyon, a spin-off at Eindhoven working on carbon capture technology.
