Cool Terra® products are engineered to improve soil health, reduce water consumption and help optimize fertilizer use while sequestering substantial amounts of carbon. The highly porous physical structure of Cool Terra also makes it a promising delivery system for microbials and nutritionals designed to enhance plant growth and productivity.
Cool Terra® products are produced using carefully selected, renewable biomass as the feedstock. The biomass is heated in the absence of oxygen, which is a process known as pyrolysis, preventing complete combustion of the biomass. The raw material that is produced by pyrolysis is then refined and upgraded through a proprietary process we call Demetra. Demetra is a critical step in our efforts to deliver an optimized, detoxified, usable and, most importantly, consistent soil health product. The Demetra upgrading process produces a truly “Engineered Biocarbon” designed to improve soil health.
