There could be hundreds of vehicles on the road next year using ClearFlame Engine Technologies’ proprietary technology that enables a heavy-duty truck diesel engine to operate on 100% renewable plant-based fuels, a company official said last week. ClearFlame plans to farm out the job of converting engines to those that have experience in the matter, John Howell, vice president of marketing and strategy, told OPIS on the sidelines of the National Ethanol Conference in New Orleans. “It would be whatever capacity they can manage,” he said, “but I think there is no reason to believe that would not be in the hundreds in 2023. “It is not a ton of labor. You don’t need to take the engine out of the chassis to do it. They could do probably do two or three engines per week.”
