Cool Terra® begins by heating renewably sourced, non-food biomass in low oxygen conditions, creating “raw biochar.” This material is then adjusted using our proprietary upgrading technology.
Cool Planet’s upgrading technology accomplishes the following:
- Cleans the pores of the material, removing hydrocarbon residues and other undesirable substances
- Adjusts and balances pH to ensure consistent performance without side effects
- Enhances the surface chemistry of the material to optimize microbial growth in the pores and on the surfaces as well as enhancing nutrient exchange in the soil
- Conditions pores to better retain water and nutrients and to host beneficial microbes
- Removes dust, improves flowability and creates consistent particle sizes for easy, predictable application you can count on
