University of Aberdeen team reach the semi-finals of the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE competition

It has been a busy week for the University of Aberdeen NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE team who welcomed competition officials from the XPRIZE Foundation and an independent measurement and verification team.

This is an important week for the team who have reached the semi-finals of this highly prestigious competition and on Friday Ross Thomson MP will pay a visit to the University campus.

Dr. Zoe Morrison, senior lecturer in Management Studies at the University of Aberdeen Business School commented:

“The whole team is delighted to have members of the Carbon XPRIZE team with us this week. It’s a chance for them to see the results of years of research and development. The next challenge for us is to find a large multinational company that specialises in industrial innovation to help us compete in the competition final. I am delighted to be a part of this ground-breaking team.”

What is the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE?
Energy drives the global economy, and the majority of that energy we rely on every day comes from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. However, fossil fuels also account for a majority of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and those CO2 emissions are a leading contributor to climate change. In order to address today’s CO2 emission levels, the world must accelerate new zero-carbon energy technologies, while at the same time continuing to develop a portfolio of carbon re-use or recycling solutions. The NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE is incentivizing breakthroughs to convert CO2 emissions into useful products.
