"Since I joined the Company last year, we have made some significant progress commercializing our technologies and executing our strategic business plan," said Jim Deller, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of ClearSign.  "I am encouraged that we are close to completing and fully launching our process burner and flame sensing product businesses, and in addition we now have diversification with sensing products in different verticals and on separate paths to commercialization.  Overall I am pleased to our see our technologies turned into products that we can develop and build on into the future."

Recent strategic and operational highlights during and subsequent to the full 2019 year include:

  • Relaunched the ClearSign business model: The goal is to deliver the Company's technology, branded as ClearSign Coreä, to the market through established equipment suppliers. The Company has made substantial progress towards collaboration with multiple channel partners and customers of boiler burners, process heater burners and flare technology.
  • Advanced our key burner technologies:  ClearSign Core burner technology now operates like a standard burner with an increased operating range and including the addition of a pilot to light the main flame directly; the need for warm up and transitioning have been eliminated.
  • Created two verticals for our sensing technologies:
    • The Company has developed a flame sensor technology called ClearSign Eye™ that can detect the presence of a pilot flame.  The Company will have a commercial version later this year. 
    • The second application for this technology is a collaboration with a global aerospace company that will include the testing and demonstration of ClearSign's sensing technology in the unique environmental conditions experienced by aerospace technologies. The ultimate goal of the project is to develop a series of commercial sensing products to benefit a wide range of aerospace fleet and military applications.
  • Pursued two demonstrations of boiler burner technologies in China: The Company now has demonstration sites for both water tube and fire tube boiler burners.  Both projects remain on hold pending travel restrictions due to the coronavirus.    
  • Rebranded Company name to ClearSign Technologies Corporation: This is the next step in the evolution of the Company and is a better descriptor of what the Company provides, namely, technology solutions.  The ClearSign Core technology is an advancement that provides best-in-class NOx emissions while also enhancing performance characteristics.  We believe that the Company's sensing technologies will have diverse applications to a broad group of industries extending beyond those related to industrial combustion.
