    XPRIZE is an educational (501c3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity, thereby inspiring the formation of new industries and the revitalization of markets that are currently stuck due to existing failures or a commonly held belief that a solution is not possible. XPRIZE addresses the world's Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself. It motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital.

    The circular Carbon economy already exists in a very functional, effective way... an amazing device called a TREE. 50% of a tree is carbon, which it literally takes out of the atmosphere as it grows. And you can even build things out of them!
    Not very innovative or flashy though so they'll probably never catch on.
