SEATTLE, WA -- ClearSign Combustion Corporation has won the "Technology Company of the Year" category for the 2015 Petroleum Economist Awards, an annual program recognizing the people, companies and projects which epitomize the best of the energy industry.
Following the event's successful re-launch last year, The Petroleum Economist Awards has introduced a wide range of categories to showcase the wealth of innovation and expertise within the energy industry. Judging panelists include independent experts from across the international energy industry, including HE Dr. Abdalla El-Badri, secretary general of OPEC and Malcolm Graham-Wood, owner, Hydrocarbon Capital Ltd.
The 2015 winners, selected from hundreds of nominations, were announced in London on September 17, 2015 by Petroleum Economist. Published ten times a year, The Petroleum Economist is an international provider of news and reports on all aspects of the energy industry (including storage, refining, petrochemicals, and unconventional sectors). ClearSign won the "Technology Company of the Year" category for tackling emissions from oil & gas operations with its Duplex™ technology.
"After being selected as finalists in other award programs like Platts and World Oil, such international recognition from Petroleum Economist is a strong indicator of the economic and environmental value this technology creates when addressing industry challenges worldwide," said Steve Pirnat, CEO of ClearSign.
