Founded in 2016 as a Black- and Women-founded and led business, ClearFlame Engine Technologies is developing a cost-effective solution to decarbonize the “hard-to-electrify” segments of the transportation sector. Their target markets include engines and vehicles in the long-haul trucking, agricultural, construction, and other non-road diesel engine sectors that have decades of use. By breaking the bond between the diesel engine and diesel fuel, ClearFlame engines eliminate the emissions of diesel particulate matter (PM) and NOx that increase asthma emergencies and threaten health in disadvantaged communities that live with disproportionate levels of diesel pollution, while also reducing GHG emissions.
