Imagine if carbon dioxide from power and industrial plants could be put to productive use.

U.S. companies are already investing in innovative technologies to capture and re-use carbon emissions in jet fuel, automobile seats, and other products. Aligned with objectives of the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, researchers are exploring new ways to transform carbon emissions into commercial products such as low carbon fuels and building materials.

At this free, public event, experts will provide updates on these breakthrough technologies, and lawmakers will discuss ways to speed up their deployment.
