What is Cool Fauna®

Cool Fauna® featuring Engineered Biocarbon™ technology has significant potential as a feed additive in Animal Nutrition applications. Fed at low levels in traditional feed rations, Cool Fauna® has the potential to help animals through a number of modes of action. The porous nature of our Engineered Biocarbon™ technology makes it similar to activated carbon, which has been used in both humans and animals. Much work remains to be done in the animal space but early indications are promising and are supported by experiences outside the U.S.

Beef Cattle or Dairy Operations

Testing will need to be done to understand the function and modes of action in the rumen. Cool Fauna® is a safe and effective organic product that shows the potential to aid in the normal processing of grain with increased farm and ranch sustainability.

Poultry Operations

In poultry, Cool Fauna® has potential to be part of both the poultry feed as well as the poultry bedding. There is the potential to reduce ammonia emissions from the poultry litter while holding onto nutrients that has been seen in academic research.

Environmental Benefits

Cool Fauna® placed into compost has the potential to hold on to valuable nutrients in the manure instead of losing them in the form of Volatile Organic Carbons (VOCs) to the air or via nutrients leeching into groundwater. This reduces noxious odor in poultry, dairy, beef or swine operations, while increasing the fertilizer value of the manure.

  • Reducing noxious odors
  • Reducing methane
  • Reducing nutrient leeching into groundwater
  • Reducing water/pasture irrigation
  • Increasing microbial life in the pasture
  • Increasing nutrient retention in manure
  • Sequestering carbon and building lasting soil structure

Cool Terra® and Cool Fauna® in a Farm/Ranch Systems Approach

Cool Fauna® and Cool Terra® are both showing promise to improve sustainability for the entire farm/ranch system. Placed into animal bedding material, Cool Terra® can help address environmental issues in large poultry, dairy and feedlot operations by helping to reduce volatiles and odor while still capturing valuable nutrients like nitrogen. The nitrogen-rich animal manure/litter, which will already contain Cool Fauna® if fed to the animal or Cool Terra® if placed into the bedding material or compost pile, can then be spread onto the field. The end result? The amount of necessary fertilizer could be reduced, and soil health and crop yield are improved. The entire systems approach is described in the other uses of Cool Terra®.
