Why the Alan has announced the award
Now the question arises as to why Allen has announced such a huge prize money for carbon capture technology. So let me tell you that this announcement made by Elon Musk is related to his many types of business. Actually Alan’s interest is in technological solutions to environmental problems. At the same time, carbon capture and storage is made up of many technologies whose sole purpose is to trap the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and inhibit it from entering the atmosphere.
Significantly, this gas is responsible for the rising temperature of the Earth. In such a situation, the use of this technology will be able to capture emissions from power plants, industry or even direct air. Let us know that at present there are about two dozen big plants in the world, from which about 40 million metric tons of carbon dioxide can be captured every year. This is about 0.1 percent of the world’s annual emissions.
Alan has recently become the world’s No.1 nobleman
Recently, in the list of billionaires released by Bloomberg, Allen has left behind Jeff Bezos of Amazon. Elon Musk has a net worth of $ 188.5 billion, which is $ 1.5 billion more than Bezos.
