Phil’s research team has just been named as a Carbon X-Prize Semi-Finalist. This $20M grand prize is given to the team that can capture and convert CO2 on the scale of kilograms per day. Phil was involved in writing the XPrize grant and was instrumental to the technology that made it to the Semi-Final round. There were 27 Semi-Finalists named and Phil’s team is one of three in Ontario. The Ontario Centers of Excellence has earmarked $2.5M to help the Semi-Finalist teams.
