A $20 Million global competition to develop breakthrough technologies that will convert CO₂ emissions from power plants and industrial facilities into valuable products like building materials, alternative fuels and other items that we use every day. Teams will be scored on how much CO₂ they convert and the net value of their products.
A majority of US voters – 55% – believe the US government should take action to upgrade the ageing coal and nuclear fleet, according to a poll conducted by Morning Consult for the National Mining Association (NMA).
