We are a technology company developing hydrocarbon and biocarbon products to address three of the world’s largest markets: energy, food and water

Reduce CO2 from the air without sacrificing performance or increasing prices at the pump

reduce your CO2 footprint

Drop-in Renewable Fuels & Chemicals

Even though they come from a different source, Cool Planet’s gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel blendstocks can be blended into the current fuel supply to reduce CO2 from the air without sacrificing performance or increasing prices at the pump.

Our fuels have been tested by independent experts and are ready for use at the pump without any changes to current vehicle fleet or fuel infrastructure.

The company’s low-cost technology and business model will allow us to produce renewable fuels and chemicals that can be competitive with traditional fossil based products.

Pyrolysis followed by catalytic upgrading

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 biochar or biocarbon. This excess carbon is highly porous and has beneficial water and nutrient retaining capabilities. By creating renewable fuel and sequestering the biocarbon in the ground as soil enhancer, we permanently remove atmospheric CO2 for hundreds or potentially even thousands of years.

Due to the company’s patented technology and CoolTerra™ biocarbon products, our renewable fuels and chemicals have the capability of being carbon negative, even beating the carbon footprints of electric and natural gas alternatives.
