SEATTLE, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSign Combustion Corporation (NASDAQ: CLIR), an emerging provider of industrial combustion technologies that help to reduce emissions and improve efficiency, recently presented at the prestigious American Flame Research Committee (AFRC) Annual Industrial Combustion Symposium. During the session, ClearSign's Chief Operating Officer Dr. Roberto Ruiz discussed the Company's Duplex™ technology in refinery applications, drawing from the companion whitepaper he authored.
Dr. Ruiz's presentation and whitepaper summarized results from recent refinery process heater retrofits in California and Texas. The data collected from the installations showed that ClearSign's Duplex technology was successfully implemented and demonstrated the capacity to consistently operate with NOx emissions less than or equal to 6ppm over a wide range of operating conditions. This emissions performance satisfies the most stringent NOx regulations and is unmatched by any other retrofit combustion technology.

"ClearSign is pleased with the results of our refinery process heater retrofit installations," said Steve Pirnat, Chairman and CEO of ClearSign. "Our industry leading technology offers the unmatched ability to lower emissions and increase efficiency, and it's backed by the best and brightest minds in the space, like Dr. Ruiz."
The AFRC Annual Industrial Combustion Symposium attracts top industry experts from around the globe to discuss challenges and innovations within industrial combustion and includes all major oil producers, refiners and suppliers of industrial combustion equipment.

About The American Flame Research Committee
The American Flame Research Committee (AFRC) is composed of representatives of industrial and research organizations and associated eminent combustion expert members in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The AFRC sponsors open forums in North America on applied combustion technology and research and supports the applied combustion research activities of the International Flame Research Foundation (IFRF). The IFRF is a worldwide network of industrial companies and academic institutes working to achieve cleaner and more efficient industrial combustion. The main task of the Foundation is thus the acquisition and generation of information with which to design flames for the efficient heating of industrial processes, with minimal environmental effects, and thereafter the design of combustion equipment to produce such flames.
