GRI Geoscience Research Institute (Loma Linda, CA) ) have formed an alliance to commercialize natural gas cofiring and related technologies that significantly enhance steam boiler performance.
Cofiring--the combustion of natural gas with solid fuel under carefully designed conditions--reduces emissions, increases operating efficiency, and reduces overall operating costs operating costs npl → gastos mpl operacionales .
Formation of the alliance, called "Acurex Energy(TM)," follows a successful five-year technology development and demonstration program. The program was sponsored by GRI and performed by Acurex Environmental, a wholly owned subsidiary Wholly Owned Subsidiary

The program led to the development of cofiring hardware and applications that have been successful in improving industrial boiler performance and reducing emissions with wood- and coal-fired boilers.
"Cofiring has delivered an impressive range of economic and environmental benefits in more than 20 recent boiler retrofits," said Acurex Energy General Manager Howard Mason. "In fact, return on investments have typically been achieved in less than two years through recovery of lost capacity, improved efficiency, fuel flexibility, and the elimination of costs associated with alternate emissions control Emissions control may refer to:
