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.
