Aduro Clean Technologies and CHILL partner to advance chemical recycling research


Aduro Clean Technologies and CHILL partner to advance chemical recycling research

Aduro Clean Technologies Inc., a Sarnia, Ontario-based developer of water-based technologies to chemically recycle plastics and turn heavy crude and renewable oils into new-era resources and higher-value fuels, is partnering with Chemelot Innovation and Learning Labs (CHILL) to execute an experimentation program at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, the Netherlands. The aim of the project is to optimize Aduro’s chemical recycling platform and to accelerate its path to commercialization.

Aduro says it is providing financial support to CHILL through a platinum partnership and, in return, will receive access to skilled researchers, specialized equipment for testing and analysis of data and additional services including access to CHILL partner events and public relations campaigns.

Aduro’s commitment to chemical recycling and their expertise in sustainable chemistry align with our mission to foster innovation and growth on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus. We are thrilled to welcome them as our platinum partner.

Under its Community for Development program, CHILL says it will execute focused experiments around Aduro’s Hydrochemolytic process for plastics upcycling (HPU). The engagement provides an opportunity for Aduro to wok on several defined-scope projects that accelerate the scale-up of the company’s Hydrochemolytic technology. The projects complement the scale-up and research activities currently being completed by Aduro, including the commissioning and operations of the pilot-scale Hydrochemolytic continuous flow plastic reactor, called R2 Plastic, and the work being conducted at Western University in London, Ontario, on different contaminants in plastic feedstocks.

The partnership with CHILL provides Aduro with an exceptional opportunity to work alongside experts in the field of chemistry and materials science. By leveraging CHILL’s extensive resources, Aduro can accelerate its development of breakthrough chemical recycling solutions that will play a crucial role in building a sustainable future for all.

All intellectual property generated from the projects conducted at CHILL will be owned by Aduro Energy Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of the company.

Aduro has taken a significant step forward in its collaboration with Brightlands Chemelot Campus. As we continue to progress towards commercialization, the support of the Brightlands community is vital in scaling up and establishing our brand as a prominent player in the chemical recycling industry in Europe and globally. We are looking forward to working alongside the Brightlands and CHILL teams in achieving our vision of achieving plastic circularity in support of the transition to a lower carbon future.
