Tulsa, OK., July 13, 2023–ClearSign Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: CLIR) (“ClearSign” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in industrial combustion and sensing technologies that improve energy, operational efficiency and safety while dramatically reducing emissions, today announced that the Company’s collaboration partner, Narion has been awarded a $250,000 phase one SBIR (small business innovation research) grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop a technology utilizing ClearSign’s sensor, which will allow Narion to enable the efficient and complete combustion of flared waste gas.


“We are excited to announce this milestone of the application of our sensor technology into the wide-ranging opportunities outside of the traditional ClearSign Core low emissions burner technology and flame sensing applications. Pursuing opportunities like this was the reason we partnered with Narion, and we congratulate them on this success,” said Jim Deller, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of ClearSign.  “This is another example of how we provide solutions that are critically needed for both the industry’s ability to affordably comply to stringent regulatory requirements and the global efforts to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. This technology that Narion is developing with the use of ClearSign’s sensor technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the carbon emissions of flaring systems, which is greatly needed in the industry.  We look forward to the advancement of this project, and the following commercialization of the resulting products.”


Narion has been selected for a $250,000 Department of Energy SBIR Phase I grant titled “Cost Effective Real-Time Flare Gas Characterization for Optimizing Methane Destruction”. Narion, in partnership with ClearSign, will be developing a novel combustion characterization sensor that directly determines the operational parameters to achieve efficient and complete combustion of flared waste gas. Additionally, the sensor is an enabling technology to help waste gas capture systems optimize their value proposition by helping to optimize selective capturing of high value waste gas.
