Cowboy Clean Fuels is a Denver, Colorado-based emerging renewable energy technology company formed in 2020. Cowboy Clean Fuels' innovative, field-tested process utilizes non-producing Coal Bed Methane ("CBM") wells and infrastructure to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) from agricultural byproducts through a naturally-occurring biogenic process, similar to anaerobic digestion, that occurs in deep, geologic formations. Coincident with RNG production, the process results in permanent sequestration of CO2 that was removed from the atmosphere in the same deep, geologic formations. The Company's proprietary and patented technology was developed by Cowboy Clean Fuels Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Michael Urynowicz, Ph.D, at, and exclusively licensed from, the University of Wyoming's Center for Biogenic Natural Gas Research. The Company's world class leadership team has over 100 years of experience in clean energy technology commercialization, upstream gas operations, and large-scale energy project development.

ABOUT PURO.EARTH is the world's leading carbon crediting platform for engineered carbon removal. Our mission is to mobilize the economy to reward carbon net-negative emissions by helping voluntary corporate buyers accelerate carbon dioxide removal at an industrial global scale. Through the Puro Standard we create carbon credit methodologies for processes that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for at least 100 years. We then certify suppliers that run those processes and issue digital tradable CO2 Removal Certificates (CORCs) into the public Puro Registry per metric ton of carbon dioxide removed. CORCs are then purchased directly from suppliers or via sales channel partners by ambitious corporations like Microsoft, Shopify, and Zurich Insurance, to help reverse climate change and neutralize their residual carbon emissions. With Puro Accelerate, our program to scale the carbon removal ecosystem, we assist suppliers who require financing to launch or expand operations through CORC advance market commitments and prepayments. In 2021, Nasdaq acquired a majority stake in and together we are driving forward the carbon removal industry, via Puro Standard certified CORCs enabling new revenue streams to accelerate its growth.
