Elon Musk funded Xprize’s $ 100 million prize pool for a competition that seeks solutions that “extract carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere or oceans and permanently block it in an environmentally friendly way.”
Xprize will award up to 15 finalists with $ 1 million each, and the top three players will win $ 10, 20 and 50 million respectively. 25 $ 250,000 scholarships are also available to student team participants.
To qualify, solutions must be able to extract 1 tonne of CO2 per day and demonstrate the feasibility on a scale.
