We consider the problem of projecting a matrix onto the cones of copositive and completely positive matrices. As this can not be done directly, we use polyhedral approximations of the cones. With the help of these projections we obtain a technique to compute factorizations of completely positive matrices. We also describe a method to determine a cutting plane which cuts off an arbitrary matrix from the completely positive (or copositive) cone.
