Aduro Joins Canada Plastics Pact as a Signatory Partner

10 May 2022

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 and higher-value fuels, announces its membership in the Canada Plastics Pact (CPP).

The CPP is part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s global Plastics Pact network, joining other plastics pacts across the world in a network of national and regional initiatives working towards the vision of a circular economy for plastics. The CPP brings together businesses, policymakers, and NGOs to work together and create a national solution to plastic waste and pollution through combined expertise, collaboration, and a desire to take action.

“Waste plastic is a fast-growing global concern in need of innovative circular solutions that are practical, sustainable, and capable of driving real social-economic change. Aduro is proud to support the Canada Plastics Pact, as we strategically partner with industry and all levels of government to focus on commercialising low-carbon, circular approaches to upcycling plastics. Aduro knows that a circular economy for plastics is within reach. We look forward to working collaboratively across the value chain to implement chemical recycling of plastics with our patented Hydrochemolytic™ Technology process,” says Ofer Vicus, Chief Executive Officer at Aduro.

“Creating a circular economy for plastics packaging in Canada will require a collaborative effort by multiple stakeholders across the value chain. We are pleased to have Aduro Clean Technologies join the Canada Plastics Pact as a Signatory Partner, bringing their insight and expertise on how to overcome the limitations of traditional recycling with their innovative chemical conversion technology,” says Sinead King, Director of Partnership Engagement at Canada Plastics Pact.
