The advanced R2 Bitumen reactor will be complemented by a newly commissioned Flash Drum, a vapor-liquid separator to enable a higher degree of variation in product samples.
SARNIA — Aduro Clean Technologies Inc., a Canadian developer of patented water-based technologies to chemically recycle plastics and transform heavy crude and renewable oils into new-era resources, announces it is entering final stages of completion of its pilot-scale Hydrochemolytic(TM) continuous flow bitumen reactor.
The advanced R2 Bitumen reactor will be complemented by a newly commissioned Flash Drum, a vapor-liquid separator to enable a higher degree of variation in product samples accepted from potential customers. The final commissioning and testing of the Flash Drum and R2 Bitumen reactor are scheduled for the end of September and October 2022, respectively.
With the goal of building a pipeline of commercial projects, the established Customer Trial Program reportedly allows the Company to engage with potential customers through product sample analysis and characterization, data, and material exchange with the aim of facilitating business discussions.
“The hard work and dedication of our research and engineering team is the driving force for effectively managing these projects,” commented Ofer Vicus, Chief Executive Officer at Aduro. “As we get closer to completing our pilot-scale bitumen reactor, the team can now focus its attention on customer engagements, detail study of the technical performance, and the ability to provide analysis and results to potential customers.”
