Oil sand companies address carbon emissions

Oil Pumpjack - Alberta

Thirteen oil sands companies are joining forces to find innovative ways that address carbon emissions and reduce environmental impacts. With a new twenty-million-dollar competition, the non-profit xprize foundation organized the contest to find new uses for converted car emissions. The four and a half year competition will award the team that successfully converts the most CO2 into usable resources. Teams will be able to choose between capturing carbon emissions from a coal power plant or a natural gas facility.
