Want to participate in the XPrize competition launched by Elon Musk a few weeks ago? Here are the steps to follow.
The incredible announcement fell at the end of January. Elon Musk has launched an incredible contest with a prize of $ 100 million . The idea? Offer this sum to the person or the company who will succeed in presenting the most advanced method in the field of carbon dioxide capture. But at the time, the brilliant entrepreneur, who recently became the richest man in the world , didn’t necessarily give details. Good news, we now know what to do next.
Elon Musk to open registrations on April 4
The boss of Tesla and SpaceX is seeking to give a boost to research in this area which should prove to be essential for the fight against climate change. In detail, 15 finalists of this competition will be entitled to $ 1 million. The first three will receive 10.15 and 50 million dollars. In addition, 25 scholarships, intended for groups of students will also be involved, with a value of 250,000 dollars each. To be selected, a method must be able to remove at least 1 tonne of CO2 from the atmosphere or oceans per day and show that it can be deployed on a large scale without the costs being too great. The objective is to be able to reach the objective of 10 gigatonnes per year, by 2050.
It is already possible to subscribe to the newsletter on the XPrize site in order to be kept informed of the details concerning this competition. But, the date to write in your diary is April 22, 2021. Registrations will then be officially open on the occasion of “Earth Day”. The competition will then last for 4 years, until April 22, 2025. The exact details of the competition will also be given on this occasion.
