Aduro Engages Rally for Specialized Engineering and Construction Management

Sarnia, ON, April 19, 2022 – Aduro Clean Technologies Inc. (‘Aduro’ or the ‘Company’) (CSE: ACT) (OTCQB: ACTHF) (FSE: 9D50), a Canadian developer of patented water-based technologies to chemically recycle plastics and transform heavy crude and renewable oils into new-era resources and higher-value fuels, is pleased to announce that it has entered into contracts with Rally Engineering (‘Rally’) that encompass the provision of a comprehensive range of services across safety, engineering, procurement, fabrication management, and project management.

Rally is a mid-sized multi-discipline EPCM consulting organization with over 250 personnel working in the refining, petrochemical, pipelines, biofuels, oil sands, metals refining, fertilizer, and pulp and paper industries.

As Aduro scales from laboratory to continuous process implementation of the HydrochemolyticTM plastics recycling process, Rally has been engaged to supply key project management and engineering services.  This will ensure that the final design exceeds industry safety standards and incorporates best engineering practices while meeting the project budget and schedule goals.  Key elements of the contracts include overall project management, engineering support, HAZOP analysis, HSE Documentation, and update. Rally’s expertise in delivering pilot-scale projects fulfills a crucial element of Aduro’s commercialization plan. This allows for faster execution and delivery of vital engineering and safety infrastructure, enabling Aduro to deliver on its commitment to bringing disruptive technologies to market in a timely manner. Rally’s experienced team also being in the Sarnia area complements Aduro’s process team and allows for the day-to-day coordination needed for driving project efficiencies.

Aduro continues to engage with potential partners in North America and Europe with the goal of building a strong network of specialized engineering teams with advanced experiences and cutting-edge know-how to accelerate the path to commercialization. The addition of Rally is an extension of our plans to build this strong network of specialized engineering and construction management partners.

Aduro COO, Gene Cammack: “As we looked at possible partners for scaling our continuous process design, Rally emerged based on their reputation for high quality, local expertise, and tight project controls. We are excited to be working with Rally as we make this critical step in commercializing our Hydrochemolytic Technology Platform.”
