Team CERT advances to final round of $20M Carbon XPrize

Carbon Electrocatalytic Recycling Toronto (CERT), a team composed of researchers from the groups of Prof. Ted Sargent and Prof. David Sinton were just announced as finalists in the $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPrize – a competition to capture and convert the most carbon dioxide into a usable valuable good. 

Team CERT has spent the last year scaling up carbon dioxide reduction reaction technologies from lab to prototype with the help of partners and contractors CO2 Solutions, Ontario Centres of Excellence, and Xerox Research Canada. CERT is 1 of 5 finalists worldwide in the natural gas stream and the only Ontario team to ever advance in an XPrize to the final round.
