ClearFlame Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Analysis

ClearFlame Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Analysis

Fleets are facing continually increasing pressure to transition their equipment to more sustainable fuels and technologies, but the over-the-road, heavy-duty truck market has faced barriers to adopting them ranging from cost and disruption to current operations to the availability of alternative fuel platforms.

A Study Conducted by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA)

This study finds that ClearFlame’s technology–which modifies heavy-duty engines to run on 100% renewable, plant-based fuels like widely-available ethanol–can help fleet owners and operators lower total costs while meeting sustainability goals sooner than any available alternative. 

This study analyzes how ClearFlame’s technology and business model: 

  • Results in a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) versus diesel and the current alternatives Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), and Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) 
  • Can provide significant and cost-effective greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions reductions in the immediate future
  • Utilizes tech familiar to fleet owners and operators
  • Relies on existing infrastructure 
  • And more

ClearFlame was allowed to comment on the study protocol and was provided with a report of the results. The study results were not impacted apart from suggestions for clarification.
