CoolPlanetBioFuels is focused on making renewable carbon neutral and negative carbon fuels practical on both a global and localized basis.
CoolPlanetBioFuels is a new Silicon Valley style startup located in Camarillo, California. It is the creation of an experienced team of technology innovators/startup experts who have created several successful companies.
The company is funded by some of America's leading venture capitalists and is focused on making renewable carbon neutral and negative carbon fuels practical on both a global and localized basis. Check out our career page for ground floor opportunities.
"Imagine driving high performance cars and large family safe SUVs while actually reversing global warming, and without using any foreign oil."
That's the vision of CoolPlanet BioFuels. We're developing revolutionary negative carbon fuels based on plant photosynthesis which absorb carbon from the air. We can make exact replacements for gasoline that will operate in your current cars and, we can make even more advanced superfuels for even higher gas mileage and better performance in future vehicles.
Our proprietary biomass fractionator technology extracts useful hydrocarbons from biomass, leaving behind the excess carbon as a high purity solid. The process generates activated carbon with a very high surface area which will allow it to be used as a soil enhancer similar to "terra preta." By burying this carbon in an appropriate manner, we can greatly enhance soil fertility while sequestering carbon for hundreds of years. In contrast, normal plant decomposition occurs in just a few years, releasing the plant's carbon as CO2 and even more harmful methane gas. Our process yields about the same amount of carbon as gasoline so, if we sequester this carbon as a soil enhancer, or simply bury it as coal, the associated fuel has an N100 Negative Carbon rating.
