Phil’s team, CERT, was just announced as 1 of 5 finalist teams to advance in the $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPrize competition to capture and convert the most CO2 into a useful product.

CERT has been working on scaling up the technology discovered in the lab to pilot scale by 2020, where they will be tested at a power-plant site in Alberta.

Phil was instrumental in the last round, working on catalyst development, drafting reports and designs, and performing techno-economic analyses and life cycle assessments.
