VANCOUVER, British Columbia – September 1, 2021 – Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF) (“Northstar” or the “Company”) announces that the planned transition, which was previously announced on July 13, 2021, of Mr. Aidan Mills to full-time Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of the Company has now been completed following the resignation of Neil Currie, Northstar’s former CEO. Mr. Currie will continue serve on the Company’s Board of Directors.
Aidan Mills, Northstar’s CEO, stated, “I am excited about becoming the new full-time CEO of Northstar, a leading-edge clean technology company. I am looking forward to now focusing 100% of my efforts on the Company with the long-term goal of fulfilling our mission in becoming a leading asphalt shingle material recovery provider in North America. Northstar has tremendous opportunity as a clean technology company that focuses on recovering and repurposing more than 99% of asphalt shingles. Our clean technology solution is expected to have a significant environmental impact by reducing landfill usage, reducing the CO2 impact of asphalt, fiber and aggregate sand production, and contributing to the "circular economy". As the Company continues to expand and evolve, I look forward to creating change by stopping single-use asphalt shingles from entering landfills in order to combat the world’s growing climate change crisis. It is time to make a difference. On behalf of the Company, I would like to thank Mr. Currie for his endless support during this transition and look forward to working with him as a director of the Company.”
