Carbon XPRIZE Winner

The $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE is a global competition that took place in three rounds over 54 months. It challenged participants to develop breakthrough technologies to convert CO₂ into usable products — with the ultimate goal of tackling climate change. CarbonCure became one of 38 shortlisted contenders for the Carbon XPRIZE in 2015 and in 2020 completed its final technology demonstration in Alberta, Canada.

“CarbonCure’s solution for the concrete industry exemplifies XPRIZE’s ideal innovation — it is effective, commercially viable, and scalable — and it can make a real difference to climate change today.”
