Aduro Announces Completion of Mechanical
Assembly of its R2 Plastic Reactor
Sarnia, ON, December 1, 2022 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire –
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, announces it has completed construction and
mechanical assembly of its pilot-scale Hydrochemolytic™ continuous
flow plastic ("R2 Plastic") reactor.
Plans for testing and certifications are in place and final
certification by the Technical Standard and Safety Authority
progressing with registration expected later this month. Once
certified, the reactor unit will be moved to the newly expanded
laboratory in London, Ontario for final testing and
The R2 Plastic unit is the Company's customer engagement unit and
is designed to handle various plastic feedstocks such as
polyethylene, polypropylene, and polystyrene as single-stream
materials, followed by a mixture of these feedstock streams. The R2
Plastic will also be used to evaluate the impact of materials found
in multilayer plastics, such as paper, paper board, polymeric
materials, metalized layers, and aluminum foil, effectively
advancing Aduro's plans of processing higher contaminated materials
which are currently rejected by existing technologies. This is
important data that will support the Company's established scale-up
and optimization program for the scaled-up pilot: R3 Plastic.
In 2022, the Company undertook several projects including the
construction of both the plastic upcycling and bitumen upgrading
reactor units, the construction of a flash drum unit for
pre-processing bitumen feedstock, and the expansion of laboratory
facilities and laboratory capabilities that will centralize the
Company's resources for more efficient execution of our R&D,
scale-up and commercialization plans.
Completion of these projects positions the Company to execute in
2023 the R2 Reactor research and testing optimization program, the
implementation of the customer engagement program and the delivery
of reactor unit design, equipment procurement, fabrication, and
commissioning of the scaled-up pre-commercial R3 Reactor unit.
Accompanying this update, the Company has produced a video
walk-through of the R2 Plastic Reactor featuring our Chief
Scientist Anil Jhawar. The video can be viewed on our YouTube

Technologies is a developer of patented water-based
technologies to chemically recycle waste plastics; convert heavy
crude and bitumen into lighter, more valuable oil; and transform
renewable oils into higher-value fuels or renewable chemicals. The
Company's Hydrochemolytic™ technology activates unique properties
of water in a chemistry platform that operates at relatively low
temperatures and cost, a game-changing approach that converts
low-value feedstocks into 21st-century resources.
