Enviro Innovate Corporation and Tandem Technical, Inc. have announced a new partnership in support of Tandem Technical and the team's pursuit of the US$20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, a global competition to develop breakthrough technologies that convert the most CO2 into one or more products with the highest net value. This partnership allows Tandem to utilise a 'first-of-its-kind' International CO2 Capture and Conversion Research, Development and Commercialization Centre, spearheaded by Enviro Innovate Corporation in collaboration with the Carbon XPRIZE during the semi-finals of the competition. A host of academic and industry collaborators in Kingston, Ontario, will also be involved, including Queen's University, DuPont, GreenCentre Canada, Kingston Process Metallurgy and WorleyParsons.
On 22 June 2016, the Province of Ontario announced that it is making up to US$2.5 million available to Ontario-based teams competing in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, and Tandem Technical is one of only three teams from Ontario that have advanced to Round Two of the Carbon XPRIZE competition that will share equally in this US$2.5 million pool.
This partnership allows Tandem Technical to utilise Enviro Innovate's carbon capture technologies and its collaboration partners who have deep research strength and excellence in clean-tech, energy and sustainable technology development. Additionally, state-of-the-art facilities and expertise at Queen's University's Innovation Park, a clean-tech accelerator, will be available to Tandem as the company develops its CO2 conversion technology. The partnership will also work with the Kingston region clean-tech cluster, which includes several multi-nationals, small to medium-sized enterprises, startups and not-for-profit groups, all of which encompass drivers, providers, enablers and consumers of clean-tech.
