Cool Planet Energy Systems, Inc. Key Developments
Cool Planet Begins Commercial Production of its Advanced CoolTerra Product
Oct 2 14
Cool Planet Energy Systems has unveiled its first commercial-scale production facility for its CoolTerra(TM) soil amendment. The new manufacturing facility is located in Camarillo, California. Cool Planet Energy Systems, a technology company that develops sustainable solutions for energy, food and water, has unveiled its first commercial-scale production facility for its CoolTerra(TM) soil amendment. The new manufacturing facility is located in Camarillo, California. CoolTerra(TM) is a highly porous soil enhancer engineered to retain water and fertilizer for improving soil health and productivity. For farmers and growers in the Western U.S. and elsewhere, the commercially available amendment gives them the ability to maintain or improve their crop yield, even in drought conditions with less water and fertilizer. Reducing fertilizer use mitigates water pollution from farm runoff. In a recent field trial testing the effectiveness of CoolTerra(TM) on high-value strawberry crops, CoolTerra(TM) increased production by 56% with normal watering levels and with 40% less fertilizer. In recent turf grass trials with a municipality, CoolTerra(TM) enabled water use to be cut in half while improving the overall appearance of the lawns. CoolTerra(TM) delivers new solutions for agriculture and water conservation. CoolTerra(TM) acts as a virtual sponge to retain water and nutrients at the root zone, establishing lasting, naturally organic support systems for crops. Trials with CoolTerra(TM) achieved significantly higher yields per acre with standard watering. With reductions in water or fertilizer, CoolTerra(TM) maintained or improved total production levels. Importantly, CoolTerra(TM) also sequesters carbon from the atmosphere, helping to reverse climate change by taking CO(2) captured by plants and storing it in the soil underground. CoolTerra(TM) has received organic certification from the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI(R)), the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and the state of Washington. CoolTerra(TM) is the first biochar-based product to be certified by the International Biochar Initiative.
