Innovation Breakthrough - Improving the Environment Using Carbon Negative Fuel
Cool Planet is addressing global accumulation of carbon dioxide emissions by transforming the fuel production process. Our carbon negative fuel cycle permanently removes CO2 from the atmosphere by sequestering biochar. This comprehensive process results in up to a 150% carbon footprint reduction, far more than any other biomass-to-fuel method.
Cool Planet’s patented technology is comprised of three revolutionary core components:
- Biomass Fractionator: Biomass is processed through a mechanical fractioning 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. This excess carbon is highly porous and has beneficial water and nutrient retaining capabilities. By creating renewable fuel and sequestering the biochar in the ground as soil enhancer, we permanently remove atmospheric CO2 for hundreds of years.
Combining bio-fractionation, catalytic-conversion, and carbon capture creates what Cool Planet calls the Carbon Negative Fuel Cycle.
