SEATTLE, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSign Combustion Corporation (NASDAQ: CLIR), an emerging provider of industrial combustion technologies that help to reduce emissions and improve efficiency, today announced that Tricor Refining, LLC has awarded a follow-on contract to retrofit a Duplex system into a Cleaver-Brooks water tube boiler. The order follows ClearSign's successful completion of a Duplex system retrofit into a vertical process heater at Tricor.
The project will be installed by Advanced Combustion and Process Controls, ClearSign's representative in Southern California, and is expected to reduce emissions while improving efficiency through the elimination of flue gas recirculation. It is expected to provide Tricor with added steam capability to better meet their production needs while providing Emission Reduction Credits from the local air district by greatly reducing NOx emissions. "We are pleased that Tricor has awarded ClearSign this additional project and that we can deliver the performance the customer seeks, namely reduced emissions and improved efficiency. We are eager to meet or exceed the customer's expectations by again delivering Best Available Control Technology level solutions that enhance Tricor's operation and put them at the forefront of environmental compliance," said Stephen Pirnat, Chairman of the Board and CEO of ClearSign. This phased project will begin with an interactive design process with the customer. Once the design is agreed upon, then the project will proceed to the field development stage for installation, and start-up. The design phase is expected to take approximately six months with installation to be subject to Tricor's operational requirements and shut-down schedule. Therefore, assuming customer approval of the design, this project is expected to be completed before the fourth quarter of 2017.
