The combination of the ERA Contribution[1], the loan from Business Development Bank of Canada (“BDC”)[2] and the strategic equity investment from Allmine Paving LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of TAMKO Building Products LLC (“TAMKO”)[3], is expected to fully fund the construction of the Empower Calgary Facility, which will proceed into detailed design immediately.

Mr. Aidan Mills, President & CEO and Director of Northstar, stated, “The final funding from ERA is a critical component of progressing the construction of our Empower Calgary Facility. We are excited to work with ERA on the first commercial implementation of our technology and believe we can help meaningfully to divert waste away from landfills for many years to come. Not only are we bringing on an industry leader with TAMKO, but we are also satisfying the funding requirements of both the government grant from ERA and the project debt financing from BDC. With both those requirements now met, we are elated to announce that the Calgary Empower Facility is fully funded.”

Northstar will be holding a webinar to provide an investor update tomorrow, Tuesday, August 1st, 2023.
