To develop a heavy-duty engine platform that thrives on clean, alternative fuels, simultaneously providing more power at higher efficiency and with lower emissions, while reducing engine manufacturing and refueling costs.
Our concept is backed by experimental data, grounded in technology developed during our graduate studies in Palo Alto.
Our findings, as well as extensive experience and interactions with large OEMs, has driven us to conduct further research, in hopes to develop and scale our technology.
Using renewable, low-carbon, domestically-sourced fuels, we've developed a patented system to replace the traditional Diesel engine. Our concept has been validated in a laboratory setting, demonstrating 30% higher power output with 100x reduction in soot emissions.
The ClearFlame team relocated to the Chicago area in 2017 as part of the first cohort of the two-year Chain Reaction Innovations program at Argonne National Laboratory. With $800k in non-dilutive public funding, an experienced team of business mentors, and access to the lab's extensive resources for further prototyping activities, ClearFlame is poised to optimize engine sub-systems and build its first demonstration unit.
New rules require heavy-duty trucks to reduce emissions by 25% over the next decade.
