Cash is up for grabs for companies who come up with innovative ideas to slash CO2 emissions from power plants in the state of New York, USA.

The initiative will give funding of up to $2m (£1.29m) per project and could include ideas such as boiler controls, advanced burners and waste heat recovery.

All projects must demonstrate the ability to reduce CO2 emissions and the use of new and advanced technologies is encouraged.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is putting $14.5 million (£9.4m) to the scheme.

President and CEO of NYSERDA, John B. Rhodes said: “Reducing the amount of pollutants in the atmosphere is vitally important as we continue to build a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable New York State.”
