SARNIA, Ontario, Oct. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aduro Clean Technologies Inc. (“Aduro” or the “Company”) (CSE: ACT) (OTCQB: ACTHF) (FSE: 9D50), a Canadian technology company using the power of chemistry to transform lower value feedstocks, like waste plastics, heavy bitumen, and renewable oils, into resources for the 21st century, is excited to announce the addition of two new participants to its Customer Engagement Program (“CEP”).
The confidential participants are global leaders with billions of dollars in annual sales, representing a significant influence in the chemicals and plastics sector and extending into the global energy market. Their expansive and diverse portfolios highlight their versatility and commitment to innovation. Despite their distinct operational focuses, both companies share a common interest in finding innovative solutions to the challenges associated with waste plastics, aiming to transcend the limitations of current technologies to achieve sustainable and efficient waste management. As part of the paid engagement, the participants will contribute funding to support the work being conducted by Aduro. The Company continues to have ongoing discussions with other potential participants and expects further additions to the CEP in the upcoming few months.
The Aduro CEP enables interested organizations to conduct controlled technology evaluation sessions of the Hydrochemolytic™ Technology (“HCT”). The program provides an opportunity for potential customers to gain in-depth knowledge about the technology, discuss specific issues and needs, and collaborate on targeted future projects. It also provides the opportunity for Aduro to perform analysis and experimentation using diverse waste polymers sourced from different locations and businesses across the world, each with varying compositions and contaminant levels. This important data supports the Company’s established scale-up program and advances the design and buildout of the subsequent tons per day continuous flow reactor unit. The insights gained also contribute to the creation of solutions tailored to meet the specific needs and challenges encountered across different industry sectors, regions, and organizations.
The CEP is designed to showcase the real-world potential of our HCT. Central to the program is our dedication to engaging early with organizations interested in exploring and possibly adopting our innovative technology. We provide a methodical process for evaluating low-value feedstocks, highlighting their transformation into high-value resources. Our engagement spans multiple stages, from initial lab-scale bench reactor assessments to advanced testing in the continuous flow reactor, offering insights into the technology’s scalability. A key feature of the CEP is the development of an extensive library that details the compositions of diverse low-value feedstock materials. Through the CEP, our goal is to cultivate partnerships with key industry stakeholders and to pave the way for upcoming commercial projects.
“The inclusion of two more participants of this calibre to our CEP marks a significant milestone for Aduro, elevating our total active projects to five,” commented Ofer Vicus, CEO of Aduro. “Each new engagement adds a unique perspective to our program, diversifies our revenue streams, and bolsters customer and investor confidence, showcasing the robust commercial potential of our Hydrochemolytic™ Technology in the global market.”
