Jacobs Vehicle Systems recently teamed with ClearFlame Engine Technologies, a start-up dedicated to clean engine technology, to further advance the company’s heavy-duty decarbonized engine solution. Jacobs provided installation support of its Cylinder Deactivation (CDA) technology, which complements the ClearFlame high-temperature, carbon-neutral strategy.

By replacing all of the petroleum fuel used with decarbonized fuels such as ethanol, the Jacobs says the ClearFlame engine technology significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions, particulate matter and smog, helping to meet stringent emissions regulations while reducing overall engine cost.

Jacobs says the higher temperatures are necessary to limit harmful emissions that otherwise would be released into the environment by a diesel-fueled engine’s exhaust aftertreatment systems during cooler vehicle operation.
