TLC is looking for innovations that can remove carbon emissions at scale, including revolutionary technology-based carbon capture, utilization and storage solutions; low carbon solutions or solutions that decarbonize energy, urban infrastructure, and transport and logistics systems.

TLC is also looking to support the scaling of viable solutions for ocean ecosystems that include restorative and regenerative efforts for coastal and marine ecosystems.

Challenge Theme #2: Food & Nutrition

With rising constraints on land, water, and energy, coupled with climate change and global supply chain disruptions, there is an increasing need for nations to enhance their food security.

This year’s challenge aims to establish a circular, net-zero urban food system in three areas critical to ensuring food security: agriculture, aquaculture, and alternative nutrition sources (including protein, carbohydrates, and fats).

TLC is seeking breakthrough technologies to provide affordable, nutrient-dense and safe food.
