CryoCOP wins the 4TU Carbon Removal Student Challenge
October 25th,  StartHUB Wageningen– Student team CryoCOP has won the 4TU Carbon Removal Student Award with their innovative idea that helps to rebalance Earth’s carbon cycle. CryoCOP’s idea is to ‘capture pure CO2 using a cryogenic process at a disruptively low price’  thereby beating the other finalists MIONA and NYMPHAE in the Dutch student competition organized by the 4TU federation. This initiative started in April 2021 after XPRIZE Foundation announced their 100M$ Carbon Removal challenge supported by the Elon Musk Foundation. This XPRIZE challenge is a special one, as it offered Student Teams a platform to compete with their 'idea proposals' for the 5M$ Student Demonstration Awards. This is where the 4TU.Federation stepped in and enabled students across the four Dutch technical universities to come together, form teams and compete for the XPRIZE's Student Demonstration Award on Carbon Removal.
