XPRIZE 

Modern Concrete Architecture

In April 2021, the UCLA CarbonBuilt team was awarded the prestigious NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, a technology development competition designed to spur development of new and emerging CO₂ conversion technologies to help solve climate change. 

 

The team was recognized for having the best demonstration project, as well as for the product’s technology and market advantages. In the competition’s final demonstration at the Wyoming Integrated Test Center, the team successfully injected nearly three tons of CO₂ into more than 10,000 concrete blocks as they cured.  Importantly, the team was able to do this without the need for expensive processing equipment.
