The NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE is an international competition to turn CO2 emissions into valuable products. 

In a three-part series, Energy Examined interviews three of the ten finalist teams vying for the $20 million grand prize: to learn about their innovations, what got them interested in the battle against climate change, and the ups and downs of competing in an XPRIZE finals.
