We want to congratulate our customer Carbyon B.V. on becoming a milestone award winner in the XPRIZE Carbon Removal competition.
Carbyon develops the next generation of equipment to capture CO2 directly out of ambient air. Their breakthrough technology enables extreme energy efficiency and low manufacturing costs. Carbyon use the Hiden HPR-20 R&D system for real-time quantitative analysis of gas species, fundamental to this application.
The XPRIZE Carbon Removal is aimed at tackling the biggest threat facing humanity – fighting climate change and rebalancing Earth’s carbon cycle. Funded by Elon Musk and the Musk Foundation, this $100M competition is the largest incentive prize in history.
This four-year global competition invites innovators and teams from anywhere on the planet to create and demonstrate solutions that can pull carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere or oceans, and sequester it durably and sustainably. To win the grand prize, teams must demonstrate a working solution at a scale of at least 1000 tonnes removed per year; model their costs at a scale of 1 million tonnes per year; and show a pathway to achieving a scale of gigatonnes per year in future.
Any carbon negative solution is eligible: nature-based, direct air capture, oceans, mineralization, or anything else that achieves net negative emissions, sequesters CO2 durably, and show a sustainable path to achieving low cost at gigatonne scale.
