On August 4 and 5, 2022, the Institute for Leadership in Capital Projects (I-LinCP) is presenting the Lone Star Sustainability Forum - Making Impact Through the Built Environment.

One of the most exciting aspects of this conference will be the bringing together of multiple organizations including project Owners, for-profits and nonprofits, K-12’s and higher education, cities and counties and other governmental agencies, as well as architects, engineers, solution providers/vendors, and contractors to collaboratively present and discuss issues and ideas related to sustainability and resiliency, with a Texas focus.

This event will be a catalyst for public and private project Owners and stakeholders to holistically gather information and momentum as we bring the resources and vision needed to achieve the goal of zero carbon emissions from the built environment, and address water, green space and the natural environment, transportation, equity, and funding, among other topics.

    BJ Johnson, PhD

    Co-founder and CEO | ClearFlame Engine Technologies

    For our climate, for our health, and for our future, we need energy solutions that can make an impact today.

    Improving access to clean energy while also making the most efficient and best use of those limited resources cannot be done in a vacuum. With a deep understanding of the whole energy picture and the underlying connections that drive it, my mission is to help identify the clearest paths for a clean energy future.

    Heavy-duty diesel engines have been the gold standard for heavy-duty applications for decades because of their reliability, durability, efficiency, and power. And yet, they are also some of the largest contributors to greenhouse gases and poor urban air quality. In 2016, I co-founded ClearFlame Engine Technologies to provide rapid, scalable decarbonization for those toughest industries.

    At ClearFlame, we developed the quickest and most cost-effective pathway for heavy-duty engines by taking the dirty diesel fuel out of the diesel engine and replacing it with decarbonized, liquid fuels. We’ve secured non-dilutive grant and investor support—from sources such as the Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, USDA, and Clean Energy Ventures—and continue to build our ecosystem of strategic partners to assist in the development and deployment.
