Aduro Clean Technologies: Revolutionizing waste

Aduro Clean Technologies is primed to become a dominant force in the growing market for plastic waste recycling and upgrading. The company’s flexible technology can be used to transform waste plastics, as well as to upgrade bitumen and renewable oils.

About 76% of the 8.3bn tons of plastic produced in the last 60 years has become plastic waste. Currently, chemical recycling of this waste is largely performed through thermolysis. However, this incurs high energy costs and plants are typically extremely expensive to build and operate. They are also usually economical only on a very large scale.

Crucially, the environmental impact of thermolysis processes can even be worse than that of the waste it is breaking down. With businesses increasingly being told to manage their plastic waste, a new solution is required to overcome these barriers.

With Aduro Clean Technologies work, that solution could be here. The company has been on a mission to solve some of the world’s most urgent environmental problems for more than a decade. Now, the organization is on the verge of moving out of the laboratory to do so.

Why you should consider investing

  • ​​Ground-breaking technologies disrupting three enormous markets

    Aduro’s HydrochemolyticTM technologies can revolutionize recycling and make use of waste plastics, bitumen, and renewables – all multi-billion-dollar sectors.

  • Greener, more profitable alternatives to today’s upcycling solutions

    Technologies require far less heat and hydrogen than industry equivalents and demand far less up-front investment, treatment, and refining.

  • Highly versatile technologies that are cost-effective at any scale

    Overcomes the key constraints of today’s upcycling methods, which dictate a tight choice of operations and scale and restrict entry for small firms.

  • Enormous runway for growth

    Looks to be significantly undervalued given its vast financial upside when compared to similar companies operating in the clean energy space.

  • Perfect time to invest

    HydrochemolyticTM technologies are only now beginning to be revealed to the market, making now the ideal time to get in early on this massive prospect.

  • Extremely experienced leadership team with plenty of “skin in the game”

    Clean Technologies’ management will receive around 60% of their remuneration upon the success of HydrochemolyticTM technology, highlighting their faith in its potential.

How does it work?


Aduro Clean Technologies’ Hydrochemolytic™ technology (HCT) platform breaks down troublesome macromolecules. Then, it transforms them into high-value, new-era resources in a way that is more cost- and energy-efficient, scalable, and versatile than any competing solution.

The company can transform plastics through a process called Hydrochemolytic™ Plastics Upcycling (HPU). This revolutionary process leverages the unique properties of water to chemically deconstruct a variety of low-value plastic macromolecules in a highly selective way.

The technology can achieve this without the need for high heat and with very few by-products. This minimizes the need for subsequent treatment or processing. As such, the technology is simpler, more efficient, and higher-yielding than alternatives.

Furthermore, it can transform waste plastics economically, on scales small or large. This means the technology does not need to be large and centralized, like near a landfill where plastic is found in a worst-case scenario. Instead, it can be scaled and distributed in communities around the world to capture plastic before it finds its way into waste streams.

Additionally, HPU is more environmentally friendly than alternative approaches. It is much less energy-intensive, due to operating at far lower temperatures, and does not rely on externally-sourced hydrogen produced from fossil fuels.

The company estimates the addressable market for upgrading waste plastics to be worth some $30bn annually.


Creating disruption

The possibility of revolutionizing the market for recycling and upgrading plastic waste in a circular and versatile way presents Aduro with an excellent opportunity. The company has also identified two enormous, additional sectors where HCT could create very meaningful disruption very quickly.

The first of these is upgrading heavy bitumen oil to a much lighter crude. Bitumen demand is growing but the transportation of the substance is challenging due to its density. The current solution is to cut it into a light hydrocarbon solvent so it can be sent through pipelines.

Instead of using high-cost diluent that eats into margins, Aduro’s technology can be used to thin bitumen for transportation. The company even notes that right-sized processing units can be installed close to companies’ wellheads. This means the platform can easily be integrated into existing thermal operations, where water and heat typically are readily available in excess.

Aduro Clean Technologies estimates that the addressable market for upgrading heavy oil is now worth around $40bn annually.

The second additional sector highlighted by the company is upgrading renewable oils into renewable fuels and specialty chemicals.

Alternative processes have long been heavily reliant on hydrogen gas. However, the hydrogen equivalent used in Hydrochemolytic™ Renewables Upgrading (HRU) technology developed by Aduro Clean Technologies is the low-value glycerol already present in renewable oils. This simplifies the process, reducing its cost and environmental impact significantly.

Aduro says its HRU technology has the ability to upgrade almost any renewable oil source — everything from the corn oil by-product from ethanol production to the grease disposed of by restaurants. The company noted that the global market for the sort of biofuels HRU can produce is expected to grow from $136.2bn in 2019 to $153.8bn by 2024.

Clear pathway to commercialization


In the next six months, Aduro Clean Technologies plans to implement its HCT in pre-pilot, continuous-flow reactor systems to demonstrate HCT application for heavy oil upgrading and plastics upcycling.

Then, within the next twelve months, the company plans to apply for government grants, begin demonstrating the tech to customers, complete the engineering package for its pilot plant, identify industry partners, complete economic modeling, and engage marketing and environment consultancy firms.

Finally, the company plans to roll out pre-commercial pilots at customer sites within two years.

Furthermore, Aduro’s strong leadership team are well positioned to guide it through this process. Founder and CEO Ofer Vicus has more than two decades of experience in developing and marketing innovative new technologies in Canada.

Then there’s CTO Marcus Trygstad, who has spent more than 30 years developing and applying advanced strategies for monitoring, controlling, and optimizing industrial processes.

Meanwhile, outside of the lab, business development is headed up by Abe Dyck, a veteran in taking renewable energy and oil and gas technologies to commercialisation. He also boasts previous exits to Nasdaq via reverse takeovers.
