Tandem Technical is a rapidly growing startup helping greenhouse gas emitters across multiple industries capture and convert pollution from a liability into an asset. The company's patented process recycles carbon into highly marketable mineral by-products such as calcium carbonate, used in products ranging from health supplements to paint, toothpaste, fertilizer, and building materials. Tandem Technical is benefiting from significant cross-sector partnership and collaboration to rapidly commercialize and scale its clean technology innovation, and meet exploding global market demand while at the same time making a major impact on industrial pollution.
Few challenges are greater and more critical than ensuring access to clean, affordable, and abundant energy. As the global energy supply remains primarily derived from fossil fuels - the leading contributor to climate change - the $20 million NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE challenges the world to reimagine what people can do with carbon dioxide emissions. This is by incentivizing and accelerating the development of technologies that convert carbon dioxide from a liability into valuable products.
Tandem Technical is comprised of engineers and scientists from Ottawa and Washington, DC. The company was formed in 2016 to develop new approaches for the environmental engineering industry. While Tande Technical focuses on the XPRIZE, they are concurrently working on a low energy desalinization technology that they hope to deploy throughout the world in low-income, water-scarce areas.
Tandem Technical's partners are Ontario Centres of Excellence, Queen's University, Innovation Park Queen's University, Mclean Chimney, XPRIZE, Enviro Innovate, and Northumberland.
Tandem Technical has a take on using media like Youtube. On the company's Youtube channel, videos related to their field of work and daily life are posted there. Tande Technical explores and discusses industry-leading techniques and principles of Carbon Capture, Water Treatment, Engineering Design, and more.
