Planetary Technologies (Planetary) today announced that it was awarded the $1M XPRIZE Carbon Removal Milestone Award. Planetary won the award for its accelerated carbon transition platform and will use the award to achieve a full-scale demonstration of its technology. The award is part of the $100M XPRIZE Carbon Removal Challenge, a four-year global competition funded by Elon Musk and the Musk Foundation.
Planetary’s award winning technology permanently stores carbon by purifying mine waste into a mild, nontoxic antacid which is then released into the ocean, restoring the ocean’s pH levels and accelerating the ocean’s absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Resilient LLP congratulates Planetary on this historic milestone!
