Drop-in Renewable Fuels & Chemicals
In addition to Cool Planet’s leading product of Cool Terra engineered biocarbon, at commercial scale, the company will be able to produce a liquid fuel or chemical product that will reduce CO2 from the air without sacrificing performance or increasing prices at the pump.
Cool Planet’s patented technology is comprised of three revolutionary core components:
- Biomass Pyrolysis: Biomass is processed through a mechanical system that uses pressure and heat to create streams of useful hydrocarbon components. Cool Planet’s sources of biomass include corn stover, wood chips, and fast growing, non-food energy crops such as miscanthus.
- Catalytic Conversion: Cool Planet has developed a number of proprietary catalytic conversion processes to convert these useful hydrocarbon components into different types of fuels. One of our catalytic conversion processes creates a high-octane gasoline blend stock that can be used in today’s standard automobiles requiring no change to existing conventional fuel distribution systems.
- Carbon Capture: Once the useful components for fuel have been removed, the biofractionation captures the leftover plant matter in a solid carbon form called engineered biocarbon. This excess carbon is highly porous and has beneficial water and nutrient retaining capabilities. By creating renewable fuel and sequestering the engineered biocarbon in the ground as a soil conditioner, we remove atmospheric CO2 for hundreds of years.
Due to the company’s patented technology and Cool Terra® and Cool Fauna™ engineered biocarbon products, our renewable fuels and chemicals are carbon negative, even beating the carbon footprints of electric and natural gas alternatives.
