About Cool Planet
Cool Planet is commercializing a game-changing agricultural technology that increases crop production at lower cost while removing greenhouse gas from the atmosphere.. The company’s green fuels are chemically identical to fossil fuels, and our engineered biocarbon platform improves soil health, reduces water consumption, and optimizes fertilizer use while sequestering substantial amounts of carbon (over 2.5 tons of CO2 removed from the atmosphere for every ton of Cool Terra™ put in the ground). The highly porous physical structure of Cool Planet’s Engineered Biocarbon product also makes it an ideal delivery system for microbials and nutritionals that enhance plant growth and productivity. The result is a healthier planet, increased food production, with higher grower profitability.
