The Technology


GLR Tech is a disruptive 3-in-1device to filter greenhouse gases, capture particulate matter, generate energy from thermal waste, and sequestrate CO2. It will be implemented in boilers, exhaust systems of industries, and internal combustion engines (trucks, buses, heavy vehicles, ships, earth-moving & mining vehicles, and generators).

The team comprehends that combustion processes might continue in the market for decades and, therefore, wants to help key industries reach net-zero carbon emissions and reduce environmental impact. Try our solutions and customized projects in order to ensure a cleaner and efficient result.

Key Benefits GLR Tech

Smart engine
While electric cars do not become a global reality, world oil demand will not decline until 2036, according to the latest OPEC report. The combustion engine market must continue for decades, and it requires solutions that minimize the harmful effects of the emission of gases.

Therefore, GLR Tech, a startup founded in 2013 and based in São Paulo (SP), has created a system capable of purifying pollutants and capturing particulate matter from diesel engines, while providing smart use of resources. In other words, GLR Tech reduces the impact of emissions and, at the same time, generates energy with these exhaust gases. “The focus was to generate enough energy to feed our gas filter, but we will generate more energy than we need for the filter,” explains Felipe Burman, CEO, and co-founder of the startup along with Gilberto Leal Ribeiro, who developed the solution.

The innovation will enable a soft transition from diesel engines to hybrid system, while the emission will be reduced by 80-90% depending on the pollutant.

“Our solution was classified as innovative and with high relevance for the global industry by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and can be customized to any combustion engine,” says Burman. “Our focus is big vehicles, such as trucks, buses, locomotives, and ships.”
