Cool Planet is a technology company developing hydrocarbon and biocarbon products to address three key necessities: energy, food and water. The key to this is a patented process that converts non-food biomass into gasoline using mechanical and chemical mechanisms. Our process, known as the carbon negative fuel cycle creates drop-in gasoline and can be used in any vehicle on the road today.
In addition to the fuel, the Cool Planet process creates a solid, inert biocarbon, known as CoolTerra. CoolTerra, winner of a 2015 Edison Award for innovation in agriculture, has many potential uses; one of which is as an organic soil enhancer that dramatically increases the retention of water and other nutrients. Using biocarbon in this way addresses the growing global scarcity of food and fresh water while removing carbon from the atmosphere.
The team at Cool Planet, along with our top-tier investors which include GE, BP, Google Ventures, and North Bridge Venture Partners, believe our technology innovations coupled with our unique business model is helping to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, improve agriculture, save water, and dramatically impact climate change.
