Carbon Sequestration & Agriculture Sustainability

What is Carbon Sequestration? Carbon sequestration is simply the intake and storage of the element carbon. The most common example in nature is during the photosynthesis process of trees and plants, which store carbon as they absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) during growth. Because they soak up the carbon that would otherwise rise up and trap heat in the atmosphere, trees and plants are important players in efforts to stave off global warming in a process called climate change mitigation.

How does Cool Terra improve sustainability? Similar to plants performing photosynthesis, and ‘pulling’ carbon from the atmosphere and transferring it to the ground, when Cool Terra® is applied to the root zone, carbon is transferred to the soil where it is the most beneficial.

For example, when Cool Terra® Organic is applied in furrow with a crop @15-30 lbs / acre at planting, 1 ton of CO2 is sequestered every 48-95 acres of field.

A Carbon negative technology: At Cool Planet, we are committed to sustainable operations. In fact, more CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and sequestered in the ground, than all of the CO2 emissions from the Engineered Biocarbon™ technology production process.

On top of that, the World Bank indicates that ‘biochar’ (the basis for our Cool Terra products) is the leading land management practice for sequestering soil carbon:
