Welcome to Cool Clean

Cool Clean Technologies, LLC is a recognized world leader in the design and manufacturing of CO2-based technologies for a wide range of applications.  Cool Clean Technologies, LLC, headquartered in Eagan, MN and founded in 2001, uses CO2 in all phases for cleaning, surface preparation, machine tool cooling, and selective extraction.

The Cool Clean team has developed and marketed a variety of CO2 cleaning and cooling technologies, with installations worldwide.  Today, Cool Clean’s CO2 technology is used in many industries such as automotive paint pretreatment, hard disk drive, medical device manufacturing, aerospace, and electronics component manufacturing.

Mission Statement: To apply our innovative COtechnologies to complex precision cleaning, extraction & cooling applications in order to improve productivity, quality & safety in an environmentally friendly way.

Our processes have four important attributes:

Processes utilizing CO2 are waterless and leave behind no residue. Parts removed from the system come out clean and dry.
CO2 technology doesn’t produce any byproducts (spent solvents, rinse water, coolants). No waste disposal required.
Processes are frequently far more energy efficient than conventional alternatives.
Reduces environmental waste at the source by modifying the production process. All processes use recycled CO2 and therefore doesn’t contribute to greenhouse gases.

What about the CO2?

Cool Clean Technologies, LLC products and processes use recycled CO2, which is obtained by capturing CO2 that is produced as a byproduct of natural and industrial processes.  The recycled CO2 efficiently replaces industrial processing agents such as solvents, aqueous treatments, and machining coolants. Replacing these processes conserves natural and human resources such as water, oil, energy, time, capital, and labor.

Producing, transporting, and consuming less of these processing agents eliminates environmental pollution and waste byproducts such as solid wastes (e.g., filters, sludge), liquid wastes (e.g., wastewater, spent oils and coolants), volatile organic compounds, and greenhouse gases.
