ClearSign receives engineering order from ExxonMobil

November 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- ClearSign Combustion Corporation, an emerging leader in industrial combustion technologies that improve energy and operational efficiency while dramatically reducing emissions, has announced that the company has received a Purchase Order from ExxonMobil to perform early engineering and installation planning regarding a trial installation of the companys ClearSign Core process burners at one of their Gulf Coast refineries, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

This order is the next step in the process for the Company to showcase ClearSign Core technologys best-in-classNOx emissions and for ExxonMobil to assess applicability across its process heater fleet. The engineering follows the previously announced qualification program that the Company performed at their State-of-the-Art Seattle R&D facility.  That testing was an evaluation over a broad range of typical conditions, including variations in fuel heating values, turndown, and excess air.

"We are delighted and encouraged by this highly significant order, and the ongoing engagement and interest from ExxonMobil," said Jim Deller, Ph.D, CEO of ClearSign. "This engineering order is one of the final steps prior to qualifying our ClearSign Core process burner technology for use in an ExxonMobil refinery, and is a significant milestone for our company in the process of demonstrating our technology with a supermajor at their facility.  This is a culmination of months of thorough evaluation and coordination between our team and the Research and Engineering team at ExxonMobil.  The specific site and location has been selected and we look forward to continuing to support ExxonMobils evaluation of our ClearSign Core technology."

As MRC informed before, in September 2019, ExxonMobil announced plans to spend GBP140 million over the next two years in an additional investment program at its Fife ethylene plant, which has a capacity of more than 800,000 t/y.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polyprolypele (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,589,580 tonnes in the first nine months of 2019, up by 7% year on year.  Shipments of all PE grades increased. The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 976,790 tonnes in January-September 2019, up by 4% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.

ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned company in the energy industry and produces about 3% of the world's oil and about 2% of the world's energy.
