Twenty Million Bucks for an XPRIZE! It sounds like a lottery win…! Eric’s leadership in connecting industry players to fund a lottery size prize for companies that create viable technologies to absorb massive amounts of CO2 has, in turn, prompted dozens of companies to mobilize. In the process competitors have identified new solutions for transforming carbon into a variety of valuable and useful commodities, and 27 are now the beneficiaries of increased investment, and soon, the opportunity and funding to demonstrate their technology at scale. And that’s not all: Overall over $100 million is being deployed to accelerate this new CO2 industry! Finalists include 8 Canadian companies and 4 Clean50 winners! And that ‘s a lottery sized win for Canada!
