The demonstration of ClearFlame's engine technology was implemented by taking a Class 8 diesel truck running on a Cummins X15 500hp 15L heavy-duty engine, commonly used for long-haul truck and off-highway applications, and converting it to run on renewable E98 ethanol. While the wide availability, cost-effectiveness, and lower emissions of ethanol make it the fuel of choice today for the engine, ClearFlame's technology is fuel agnostic and can run on a range of renewable fuels.
Trucks equipped with ClearFlame's cost-effective and scalable engine technology will significantly reduce CO2 emissions air quality emissions -- particulate matter (soot) and Nitrogen Oxides (smog). ClearFlame has the potential to mitigate carbon in the heavy-duty truck sector faster than any alternative, including hydrogen and battery EV, without compromising engine performance. Diesel engines release billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year, and projections suggest that even with a growing number of alternatives, only 25 pct of new heavy-duty trucks in 2035 will be zero emissions, unless other alternatives are developed, according to ClearFlame.
ClearFlame's technology can be used anywhere diesel engines are used today, and leverages existing infrastructure -- fuel production and distribution, engine manufacturing and re-manufacturing processes, and the heavy-duty parts & services industry.
In addition to long-haul trucking, the technology enables emissions reduction for hard-to-electrify applications in a wide range of industries, including agriculture, power generation, and other off-highway markets. ClearFlame is also working with John Deere on a pilot demonstration project for an off-highway engine platform, demonstrating the versatility of the company's technology as a retrofit option or original equipment integration.
As previously reported, ClearFlame recently secured $17 million in Series A Financing, led by Bill Gates-founded Breakthrough Energy Ventures, with participation from Mercuria, John Deere, and Clean Energy Ventures, ClearFlame notes.

ClearFlame's unique engine technology enables low-carbon, renewable fuels such as ethanol to be easily integrated into existing diesel engine platforms, offering a lower-emission, lower-cost solution than diesel fuel. A ClearFlame-enabled engine meets the performance and efficiency requirements for diesel engines while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and particulate matter, helping to improve air quality and mitigate climate change.
ClearFlame previously received $4 million in non-dilutive and grant funding from the Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas and Illinois Corn Growers Associations, the National Science Foundation, the US DOE and others. The company completed its $3 million Series Seed financing in early 2020, led by Clean Energy Ventures.
"At ClearFlame Engine Technologies, we're breaking the bond between the diesel engine and diesel fuel,
accelerating the path to true emissions reduction for the heavy-duty and off-highway markets. Our technology meets global sustainability goals using decarbonized liquid fuels available throughout the world while lowering costs by negating the need for complex after-treatment technologies without compromising the practicality or performance of traditional diesel engines." according to the release.
