Koleya Karringten had an early mentor in entrepreneurship – working with her father during her teen years in his businesses. She co-founded (when she was a single Mom) Absolute Combustion, a clean tech value proposition with her Father, and continues to grow it as the CEO.
When they entered the Oil & Gas sector to focus on conserving the use of natural gas (then at a higher price), the recession of 2008 hit hard, forcing them to pivot on their value proposition into other sectors.
So what did they do? During the downturn they focused their time and investment into validating the technology with engineers, and found new customer opportunities in the aerospace sector.
They are currently involved with EIA in testing out their burner for Aerospace. Their goal is to create devices that will allow airports to cut emissions, decrease maintenance and increase the safety of their heating equipment.
So what is the technology? The Absolute Extreme Burner TM can deliver an Exhaust Velocity Harmonic TM (EVH) that can dramatically increase heat transfer efficiency in a fire-tube application. The ACI burner has 100% combustion efficiency, leaving zero carbon monoxide (CO) emissions in the exhaust stream. This is considered a platform technology and we believe it will set a new standard for NOx and CO emissions as well as how heat transfer efficiency is delivered and measured.
