ClearFlame Engine Technologies has developed a soot-free engine for heavy-duty applications. For the thirteenth episode of High-Tech Sunday, tune in to listen to CEO Dr. BJ Johnson and CTO Dr. Julie Blumreiter talk about what inspires and motivates them, and their engine technology that is disrupting the transportation and power generation sectors.
Dr. BJ Johnson is CEO and co-founder of ClearFlame Engine Technologies, a start-up company dedicated to the development of clean engine technology for heavy-duty trucks, off-highway, and industrial applications. BJ co-founded ClearFlame to develop solutions that increase the performance of and reduce emissions from internal combustion engines using decarbonized fuel. BJ was the lead inventor on a patent filed by Stanford University for this work, which now forms the center of ClearFlame’s intellectual property.
As CTO and co-founder of ClearFlame Engine Technologies, Dr. Julie Blumreiter is committed to developing and maintaining a clean, sustainable, and equitable future for all people in her daily work. The foundational science behind ClearFlame grew out of Stanford University’s Advanced Energy Systems Laboratory, where Julie completed her Ph.D. in 2016. While there, her work focused on modifying engines to study high efficiency, advanced compression ignition concepts.
